Felix and I started our journey in the States in Chicago. I have friends that I know from Germany days that now live in the Chicagoland area. Our visit with them was so special. I have known them for years and years, but this was their first time meeting Felix. They took such great care of us while we were there. We really enjoyed our time there. We got to tour around Chicago and see Lake Geneva in Wisconsin. Sadly, our time with them was way too short, but we had a wonderful time w/ them!
