Chicago, what come someone say about this city. I firstly came to Chicago before five months and I still live hear. The reason was that I wanted to go to the university. Now and after so many months in my everyday routine is included the train. Yes, everyday I have to take the train, which I believe is the most convenient way to move to that big city so as to avoid traffic. The train makes Chicago a real "moveable feast" and I say that because, inside a train you can see, you can feel, you can smell too, a lot and different things.

Inside a train, you can also see different places. In may occasion I can see some different towns, and I try to compare them with the one I live, I try to find if there are any similarities and if yes, which are. Also when the train stops you see the people who are ready to board on the train to wait in the cold weather inside their warm clothes and every second to look at their watches to make sure that are not late.
