One day in Chicago...
I have to say Chicago is the first city I know from US because of the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan from NBA. After arriving here, I found much more, including the amazing skyline, the cloud gate or the big bean, and frozen windy weather,etc.
Chicago is definitely a great city to visit especially when it is warmer.#chicago #chicagoskyline #bigbean #cloudgate #michigan

As many of my friends, coworkers, acquaintances, etc know, but many do not, my mom, @buenoa79, was born & raised in São Paulo, Brasil, making my brothers & I 50% Brasilian, along with being citizens of the country, & I’ve always thought it was one of the coolest aspects about my life! My mom is the only member of her family to have moved to the United States, & so as a family we used to visit our family in Brasil generally every other year or so while I was growing up, & some of my best childhood memories belong to & in the beautiful, vast country that is Brasil... & many of those best childhood memories in the 1990’s involved my two cousins @pedrobuenocoura & @lubuenocoura! .
.
.
But then, for a variety of reasons, but mostly due to finances, I have not visited Brasil since 2001, & haven’t seen those two cousins since then... until last week I got the amazing opportunity to see Pedro on a layover he had in Chicago before flying back home to Brasil, after he spent the last 6 months studying English in San Francisco. While we only had about 4-5 hours together, it truly was amazing! After eating an incredible pulled pork BBQ sandwich at @greenstreetsmokedmeats, my brother Steven & I showed him around downtown, walking several miles to show him the Chicago Riverwalk, Lake Michigan, Millennium Park, Navy Pier, Michigan Ave, State St, the Theatre District, & more... I’m hoping we did Chicago justice for the limited time we had!

Anyway, I’m SO SOOO GLAD we got the pleasure to see Pedro, to catch up, or really get to know each other after all these years (but thank goodness for the internet bringing our worlds closer together the last few years so we didn’t feel like complete strangers!), & now my brother Steven & I are in the works of planning a trip to Brasil for next summer (our summer, Brasil’s winter, since we won’t be able to handle the heat/humidity of Brasil’s summer, haha), & I CAN’T WAIT! I love you Pedro, & seriously I’m so impressed with your English... keep working hard at it, & in University, & I know you have a bright future ahead! 💕 🇧🇷❤️ Te amo muito... beijos e abraços!
