Tourist at home

Since moving to Rome four years ago for school I usually only make it home for an annual trip. These trips typically consist of visiting family, buying things I can’t get in Italy, and just overall getting a break from my busy school and work life. This year’s trip back to Chicago was special, though, because I brought Nadeem with me. Being the wonderful photographer and adventure partner that he is, we got to discover my hometown like I never have before. Our trip mainly consisted of meandering through the city streets and eating massive amounts of delicious only-in-America food. What else do people do here, after all?

I ended up with some pretty nice photos, if I do say so myself. Check out my favorites below 🙂
