Homesick for Chicago

This is one of my favourite cities in the US.
I am very glad to visit it again this summer.

Travelling for two weeks

I will be in the US – Durham, NC, and Chicago – in the next two weeks and I will not be able to access my blog on a regular basis. I hope you will be patient with me as moderating comments will take a little bit longer.

See you.

Ceea ce m-a facut puţin suspicios a fost fraza cu care se încheie mesajul. Ea sună cam aşa:

„If this story means anything to you, please pass it on to a friend or two. It is a true story and is not enhanced for publicity purposes.”
