Day 5: Wednesday, 3/16
After meeting with Jennifer's former teacher, Rachelle, in the morning, we decided to go see the Baha'i House of Worship in Wilmette, IL upon her suggestion- due to the intricate architecture and beauty. There are only 8 Baha'i Houses of Worship in the world, with the one in Wilmette being the only House of Worship in North America. A half hour drive from Jennifer's house, I was extremely surprised when she told me that she did not even know of its existence. It was sunny and windy outside, so we did manage to capture several good shots. I was in awe of the architecture the entire time I was there- everything was so detailed and complex.
Day 6: Thursday, 3/17
Thursday was a lazy day. I tried to catch up on some schoolwork and watched some TV shows on Netflix. For lunch, Jennifer treated me to steak tacos from a local supermarket. I probably mentioned this before, but being an absolute foodie makes me really appreciative of all the different types of foods that I eat. This meal deserves two thumbs up for being yummy and cheap.
Jennifer's dad also grilled various meats for dinner which I ate with Jennifer's mom and aunt (Jennifer was taking a "nap" for two hours). As you can tell, my stomach was treated very well throughout the trip :)
Day 7: Friday, 3/18
Headed back into the city for some more fun in the morning and afternoon! This time around, the weather was very cooperative, so photos turned out better :D
FINALLY took Jennifer to eat at a dim sum restaurant. This location of Minghin Cuisine was more Westernized- no dim sum carts with employees advertising the contents inside. We ordered dim sum from a piece of paper (with pictures) and the dishes were brought to us on plates and not bamboo containers. I had another opportunity to practice my Cantonese with the servers!
