Day 2 - Immigrant and Refugee Populations

Day 2 - Today was fantastic! Our day started off with a leisure wake up and some breakfast. We then walked over to the bus stop to head over to Navy Pier! For a Sunday, public transport in Chicago is crazy busy but the city life is exciting! We got to Navy Pier for the Philippines Festival and it was unbelievably colorful and energetic and we got to see some amazing performers! Some of us also went to the tables and got to see what all of the volunteers were doing at the event! We had an amazing time! The rest of the day was spent wandering around Navy Pier and sight seeing Chicago. Tomorrow we will be going to Heartland Alliance to do some volunteering! Here is a snapshot of our day today!

After doing some time at the Navy Pier, a group headed over to Millenial Park and the Bean. It was exciting for some f us, as it was our first time seeing the Bean! We took lots of pictures and geeked out a little too! As we finished up out trip to the park and the Bean, we headed back to the hostel to relax and start dinner. It was mine and another participants turn to prepared dinner. We prepped the ingredients to assemble veggie burgers and also baked some fries. The food was delicious. After we finished up dinner, the entire group got together to have reflections and a team builder. Let's just say that we definitely bounded with the team builder activity! That was the end of our planned day. Tomorrow we are headed to Heartland Alliance! We are excited!
