Having been in Chicago for just over a month, I was starting to think that the United States is all about these amazing glass structures and chaotic city traffic. I was fascinated when I got to visit an 1890s farm in the suburb of Wheaton, Illinois. Thanks to Bridges International for taking us on a super awesome field trip to this living museum.

Having traveled from India to Chicago for over 26 hours on multiple flights, I was super tired and jet-lagged. It took a couple of days for me to recover and adapt to the time difference, but then I started missing India, the spicy food, noisy traffic, vibrant colors, and most of all, the people. That’s when I pulled out my phone and started to search for the nearest restaurant, also I needed a couple of Indian spices, so I needed a store that sells Indian groceries, that is how I found out about Devon Avenue, also called Little India.

For a very long time, I have enjoyed traveling to different cities and experiencing different cultures. When I landed in the US, precisely Chicago, approximately nine months ago, I came up with a plan to travel a lot. But between handling assignments, applying for internships, attending regular classes, and with COVID-19 - it became increasingly difficult to take a spontaneous flight and travel freely. Over this, not to forget, the money crunch which comes complimentary with student life. After spending almost nine months in Chicago, I finally got the time and opportunity to travel to Arlington during the spring semester break. Spending seven days in Arlington, Texas, I realized how two cities in the same country could differ so much.

Garfield park conservatory is known as one of the country's largest and most beautiful botanical conservatories located at 300 N Central Park Ave, Chicago. It features lovely glass architecture and is known as a glasshouse. Again, the house is beautifully divided into sections for different plants and flowers that require different habitats.
