Day 5 (November 30)
After a rather bumpy early morning flight from the Liberty International Airport (New Jersey), we landed at a very cold and windy Chicago, enveloped under a thick cloud cover. The drive to downtown Chicago was slow, with huge traffic jams all along the way. The traffic looked so familiar because the Inter State highway was packed with cars and trucks. And yet it looked different. Thousands of cars trying to come in, into the downtown area. Each maintaining a certain sense and discipline and dignity to the situation. No honking, no cutting lanes, and a decent distance maintained between each vehicle..
Meeting over, I am back at the airport at around lunch time. I now have a long wait in the Business Lounge, for my flight which leaves at 6 pm.
Next stop - Brussels.
