【再訪芝加哥.Chicago】Day2 - Raymon

We were supposed to meet up at 11am, Red Line Argyle stop. I left Doris's home around 10am. However, there was a Cub's game at Wrigley Field. Therefore, it was so crowded and the train was running slow. I got off at Argyle at 11:45am, totally 45 minutes late. Sorry Raymon, he is always on time. We went around Little Vietnam for lunch. I went there before but I couldn’t figure out how to go to the restaurant I went before. It was a nice and famous Vietnamese restaurant. In the end we just randomly pick one around Argyle stop. It was ok, not very impressive though. After lunch, we walked to Andersonville. On our way I saw the restaurant I went before. I think it is on “Clark Street”. Andersonville has the North European feeling. There is a big water tower? with Sweden’s mark on it. I remember I had a breakfast with Jacqueline once before, but never came back again until now. It’s a truly nice area. Maybe I am very into European atmosphere, so I really like here. There were some really nice little stores around. One of them is “Fourli”?? They have nice postcards and letter press. We just walked alone the street, took a look of what we were interested in. It was not a very long walk, but relaxing. Then we took bus to “Lincoln Park” area, because there were some churches I wanted to take a look. It was weird I never went to any churches visiting except the one close to my apartment. I like all kinds of churches. It was surprising that how people could worship God and spent so much time to built those magnificent churches. Moody Church. The historical museum was closed, but the moody church was just across the street. The exterior was quite exotic. We went to the Chicago History Museum. The Museum was closed, but the store was open. I was thinking if I want to buy a cheesy T-shirt here, but I still didn’t do it. Then we went to Cultural Center. The original plan was to see the Tiffany Dome. However it was covered for some reason. There was an exhibit of “Chicago Landmarks Before the Lens”. Funny, because I was not be able to make it to the historical museum, but now there were 72 black and white photographs of 24 landmarks and historic districts, nice! Time for dinner We went to Giordano’s Pizza. When we approached there, I saw a bunch of people standing outside of the restaurant. I told Raymon “Those people would better be not waiting to be served!” Of course they were. My GOD! It turned out to be, we have to wait for one hour to order, and another half an hour to get a table. Ya Right. Therefore after Lukluk was here, we went to “California Pizza Kitchen”. It was kind of ironic that I came all the way from California to Chicago, but ended up eating in “California Pizza Kitchen”. (I always pronounce it as “California Pizza Chicken”). It was a nice place though, and we waited unless then 15 minutes to get a table. After dinner we walked towards downtown. Even though at night there were many people walking on the street. I guess it was because of the summer time, so there were still many tourists. The summer night of Chicago was beautiful. Thanks Raymon. It was a great day. 剛認識Raymon的時候覺得他很討厭, 因為他嘴巴實在賤到一個不行。 後來真正深入認識以後, 雖然還是覺得他很討厭, 可是慢慢發現他對甚麼事情都很認真的態度, 真的是對任‧何‧一‧件‧事‧情。 譬如說,我們每一兩個月都會聚餐一次, 只要我跟他講六點半, 他就不會六點四十才到, 絕對準時。 這種態度反應在他任何一件事情上面, 完全不依賴別人, 當然也很願意幫助別人, 不會得理不饒人(嘴巴上會), 但是認為該做到的事情他絕對的認真, 作業從來不會遲交, 上課也不會遲到, 感覺上就是一個人可以把自己的生活打理的井井有條。 不要說別的好了, 我覺得我自己已經是個很準時的人, 可是有時候因為公車還是走錯路還是怎樣, 我也會遲到個十分鐘,就是從來不會看他遲到, 所以後來聚餐的時候我乾脆都跟他講晚一點, 如果是六點半的話, 我會跟他說大概七點左右, 因為幾乎大家都不會準時, 只有他。 或許工作以後他也有點成長, 也或許我們這次很久沒見面, 去之前他跟我敲定時間, 幫我安排了一整天的行程, 整個過程之中沒聽到他在嘴賤。 而且他的行程是那種, 幾點到幾點我們要幹嘛, 幾點到幾點我們要幹嘛的那種, 哇靠,當我看到他的email的時候我還真的愣在那邊。 總之, 我實在不知道一開始我怎麼可以忍耐他那麼久, 因為這種人,大概要深交到一種程度, 我才會覺得想要繼續跟他聯絡吧。
