Lecture Tour Day 5: Sleep!
As this was the weekend, I had a spare day in Chicago. Did I go to the Field Museum? I did not. Did I go to the Museum of Science and Industry, which I adored as a child? I did not. I felt as if I was coming down with something, so I just cocooned in my hotel room and slept most of the day. I began to get worried, though, because no less an event than the Chicago Marathon was due to go right past my hotel. The place was full of runners. I wasn't sure about getting out to the airport in the morning because so many streets were blocked off.
