Thursday 2nd August 2001, Chicago IL
I am sure there where more interesting things we could have planned today, but, by now, we all had things that we needed to send home. We put together a large parcel of unwanted clothes, maps, and souvenirs, and took the lot to the Post Office. After a side-trip to Office Max to pick up some extra bubble wrap and tape, we mailed Ree’s new lamp, and our parcel, home.
Brigid had long wanted a pair of smart sandals, so our next stop was to Miroballi Shoes (no co-incidence, Joe’s parents’ own a successful chain of shoe stores), then on to Barnes & Noble, to pick out some holiday reading.
We had dinner with Alex at Harrison’s Restaurant. The service was a little slow, so we whiled away the time playing ‘Hangman’.
