7 typical American things I did in Chicago

After watching all those American TV shows and movies, the everyday American life was quite exciting for me. What better way to visit a country than to be like the locals right?

1. Stay in the suburbs

2. Overeat like a true American

The biggest buffet I’ve ever seen in my life.

3. Drive literally everywhere

Once my friend even drove us to the other side of the parking lot where my cousin’s car was parked. It’s true, everyone here has a car. And it’s a big deal to walk apparently. 

4. Make friends with strangers within minutes

6. Eat at a drive-through

At Superdawgs you park your car by a machine and the staff come out to give you your food in the car! Nomnomnom

7. Shop like a true consumerist

Three days worth of shopping. I came at the best time aka, clearance of clearance time!

Topped with my accent, I think I blended in quite well. Hmm, maybe I could live here after all!
