A few days in Chicago

So I visited Chicago last october. Unfortunately, I only stayed for three days, so I didn't have the time to really venture outside the Loop area.
Anyway here are some pics I took and a few videos I made from this trip.

Landing in Chicago Midway airport :

Salutation.

Hè je viens de regarder ta vidéo sur les églises en Russie.
Bon, honnêtement, je ne fous jamais les pieds à l'église. C'est ennuyeux, plein de femmes qui s'ennuient, de vieux bizarres plus ou moins proches de la maladie d'Alzheimer... Et ça finit par être embarrassant et très chiant. Les curés frustrés te mâtent avec défiance comme si t'étais qu'un pauvre pêcheur, alors que parfois, c'est eux qui sont plein de vice, et malheureusement souvent plein de frustration.
D'ailleurs, quand j'étais qu'un gosse et supposé être chrétien, je m'en foutais. Je me vantais d'être matérialiste comme les communistes et les capitalistes.
Je vais te le confier; des fois, souvent, je me sens coupable de leur frustration.
C'est de plus en plus dur pour moi, dans ma conscience...

Car je crois beaucoup, maintenant que j'ai un peu plus d'expérience. J'ai vu plus de trucs et tout... Je fais de mon mieux pour faire vivre notre foi, même si je sais bien que j'en suis indigne et insignifiant.

J'aime bien ces églises en Russie. L'architecture vouée à la foi chrétienne est souvent impressionnante.
