Chicago - Museum of Science and Industry

Watch the graviton making process!

Chicago - Museum of Science and Industry

Today is free admission day to the Museum of Science and Industry. The best thing about museums in Chicago is that you can spend the whole day in it and still cannot finish viewing all the exhibits. It is simply too big!




This is Toymaker 3000. I made my own Graviton for 5 USD.

Niagara Falls

Our journey begins from Chicago to the Niagara Falls.


We reached Niagara in the morning around 4.30am. You can see that the sky was still a bit dark. Furthermore, it seems like it was going to rain.

So, here I am, at Niagara Falls!


Behind me is the American Falls, one of the great falls that make up the Niagara Falls.


The gushing waters of the American Falls.


I am crossing over to Canada to get a better view.

Indiana Dunes State Park

We decided to do something different today. We are going to drive to the Beach! It was located in Indiana. A 2 hours drive to get us there from Chicago.



The park consists of 2,182 acres of primitive, beautiful, historical, and amazingly unique Hoosier landscape. It lies in Porter County and includes more than three miles of Lake Michigan's south shore, all of which provides a magnificent beach. Eighteen hundred acres are wooded and contain the most diversified flora and fauna of the Midwest. Other areas made up of drifting sand hills, peculiar to the dunes region. A pavilion on the beach provides shelter, bathhouses and a complete snack bar during the summer season.
