Friday Off

I had to work for the past two “Wellness Fridays” for half-day, and today, I took a Friday off to compensate for these two halves. It was the only day off I took during Boris’ visit, and we had plans.

The first and the most important thing we did – we went kayaking! There are many kayaking opportunities in Chicago, and I knew that Boris wanted to try it. However, I was more than scared to try, and the reason I finally gave in was the offer from the Shedd Aquarium: they run “Kayaking for conservation” tours, where they show the conservation and restoration efforts on the Chicago RIver. I chose a tour “for people with no experience” and signed us up.

Boris really enjoyed it. As for me, I am happy that I overcame my fears, although it was not easy. Perhaps if I would practice more, I would start to enjoy it. Today it was mostly “I made it!”

That’s me – thanks, Boris, for taking the picture!

In the evening, we went to the Millennium Park concert. It’s hard to believe, but it was my first time this summer! Somehow things never worked: either because of the weather or because of other commitmenst. Oh, how much I missed Carlos Calmar and his comments about composers! How could I miss most of the season!!!

I think, it was pretty much perfect 🙂
