Michael’s Travel Diary

Tuesday, 18 Nov 2008

Location: Chicago, USA

MapLast week I made an unexpected trip to Chicago. My Uncle Mike had been diagnosed with cancer, and it spread so aggressively, and his health deteriorated just as quick, before we knew it there was little time left. I headed across on 4-5 nights in Chicago, and admittedly hardly left the house. I had never seen anything like it, and despite everyone warning me that it was 'shocking', there really are no words to describe it. I left on the Sunday, which happened to be his 54th (?) birthday, and the following weekend he had passed away. So glad I was able to make the trip, just wish it had been in better circumstances.
