Til nød kan Chinatown gå, og den sidste dag i Chicago blev brugt i netop Chinatown, hvor der også var nogle japanske ting.
There is much love for everything Japanese in the family. So we obviously had to find some Japanese shops and food when in Chicago.
Chinatown is acceptable, too, if there is no Japanese places, so our last day in Chicago was spent in Chinatown, where they had some Japanese stuff as well.
We found a place to eat, where they had bubble tea. Yum, it was so delicious! It's smoothies with jelly-beads that you have to chew. In this special place, they were cooked with sugar and really tasted nice.
Der er en velassorteret boghandel, hvor jeg fandt et par strikkebøger. Også en af Vivan Høxbro! Desværre købte jeg den ikke. Desværre, fordi den faktisk kun er udgivet på japansk!
We also found Chicago's "Japantown", which is a small mall close by the airport.
They have a well-stocked book-store, where I found some knitting books. Including one by Vivian Høxbro! Unfortunately, I didn't buy it. Unfortunately, since it's actually only published in Japanese!
Det mærkelige er, at jeg faktisk har været i den boghandel før. Engang jeg besøgte familien i San Francisco, fik jeg en overnatning i Chicago pga. sne og is i lufthavnen. Jeg boede lige ved siden af det japanske center, så da vi kom til Chicago denne gang, vidste jeg jo allerede, at der ihvertfald var en japansk boghandel!
Dengang havde jeg da slet ikke overvejet, at jeg måske kom tilbage!
This book by Helga Isager is in my library at home. In Danish. So I didn't buy that one either.
The strange thing is that I went to this very book store before! Some years ago I visited the family in San Francisco and got a night in Chicago due to snow and ice in the airport. I lived right next to the Japanese center, so when we went to Chicago this time, I already knew about the Japanese book-store!
At that time, I never considered I might be coming back!
Vi købte ikke hårfarve, selv om det var sjovt at se hårfarve til asiatisk hår!
They also had a supermarket in the center, where they had all kinds of weird Japanese stuff. We bought candy and stuff.
We didn't buy hair dye, although it was fun to see the different colors for Asian hair!
We did buy facial masks. With snail slime!
Og en rødvinsmaske. Ikke dårligt! (Nu skal jeg så bare samle mod til at prøve mine!)
And a red-wine mask. Not bad! (Now I just have to gather enough courage to try mine!)
My earrings have nothing to do with Japan. But I'm SO ready to watch Sharknado 1 and 2 now!
