Because I didn’t pass the JLPT last year, I decided to take it again this year. Again, I had to travel to Chicago to take the test. Dad took me on Saturday afternoon and we stopped at a hotel about 20 minutes outside of Chicago. We knew pretty much what to do this time so it went a little smoother than last year. In the morning we got up and headed into Chicago.
The first thing I wanted to do before going to take the test was see Millennium Park. I wanted to go see it last year but we didn’t have time, so it’s a good thing we got to go back. Millennium Park was really cool!

The Millennium Park Orb.
This was the main attraction, the thing I wanted to see. It’s a sculpture called Cloud Gate. Made in 2004, it is constructed completely out of stainless steel plates and then heavily polished so there are no visible seams.
It has a very reflective surface.
