In order to file my au pair visa, I had to drive five long hours to the French consulate of Chicago. Considering I lived in Chicago for the past four years, it was also an excuse to visit some very beloved friends and family. And to enjoy some much-needed bonding time with little brother.

I had a hard time narrowing things down — I need your votes! Will it be photo one, two, three or four?

Chicago View

This is the view from my little brother's apartment, isn't he lucky?

Photo Two

This is my little brother. He's a cutie.

Photo Three

Chicago Architecture

This is the lion in front of the Art Institute of Chicago, notice the four-star Chicago flag in the background. Also adjacent building.

 

Photo Four

Chicago Skyline

I found these funky skyscrapers on a walk back from Trader Joe's. Weird, right?
