Chicago Day 6: Chicago O’Hare Airport

Finally, it’s time to head to the airport. We picked up our luggage from the hotel and went back to the James R. Thompson Center to catch the blue line to the O’Hare Airport.


The fare from city center to O’Hare airport is only $3.


We got a quick bite from McDonalds in the airport after we passed security check.


Since we had plenty of time, Ben and I just went exploring the different terminals. Here are some of the photos we took from O’Hare airport.









Well, we had so much time that Ben took a nap.


Nazanro was bored waiting. He wanted a snack.


So, I went looking for something light and found Eli’s Cheesecake that was on our list of food to try in Chicago.


I got a slice Caramel cheesecake for Nanzaro.

When it’s time for boarding, we went to the gate to line up. Only then, we realized that we were at the wrong gate. Ben just assumed our flight is to YVR and forgot that we actually have to return to Seatac. Luckily Nanzaro noticed it before we started to line up.

With little time left, we rushed to the right gate which just happened to be very far away. We arrived just in time for boarding but then we noticed that our plane has not even arrived. Well, our flight was delayed for 1 hour and 15 minutes after all the unnecessary rush.


The unknown waiting time made Nanzaro hungry. So, Ben got him some fried rice with orange chicken and beef broccoli from Manchu Wok.

Finally, we got on the plane and arrived in Seatac at 11:00PM. We called for the courtesy ride from the hotel where we parked our car and drove home. By then, we were all hungry. So, we went to No.9 restaurant to have a mid night supper of Salted Fish Fried Rice and Egg Swirled Shrimp Rice Noodles, our comfort food. By the time we got home, it’s already 3:30AM. It’s great to sleep on our own beds.
