PHOTO POST: New York and Chicago!!

I'm back from one of my highlights of 2012 and probably one of the best journeys I've ever been on!
New York and Chicago were absolutely amazing! Two weeks were certainly not enough, the ones of you who've been there know what I mean.
My good friend Larissa and I had an appartment on the Upper West Side in a little hotel and did a mixture of sightseeing and relaxing in my favorite city. The people in NYC are said to be so rude, well, if you ask me they're tons nicer and friendlier than Europeans ;) We met so many random people that we exchanged stories with, every day! 
Chicago was stunning. I wonder why no one ever seems to have been there. The skyline is amazing as well. Only backfire was the 41° Celsius that we had over the whole of the two weeks :D Of course, we went swimming in Lake Michigan one day.
I don't have to tell those who have been there, but the United States is definitely something different! Especially NYC, where you wish you were friends with every second pedestrian, just captures my every blood vessel and thought while I'm there (hehe). I hope that once I can live over there and to you, who have not been in NYC or Chicago, go there! Summer or winter, never mind :)
Now I just wish all of you a wonderful remaining summer, mine started out VERY well, I hope yours did too. Enjoy my impressions:


New York City Skyline... Lower Manhattan - the Staten Island Ferry is for free, never enjoyed anything that much ;)

    New York must be amazing, but Chicago (as far as i see in your pics) has some interesting places, like the contrast in the riverside. I'm looking for more information about it ; )
