Just like the train system in Chicago. In the first month, I always take the wrong line of wrong direction. the whole sysyem will become a little comfuse if you are familliar with it. Such like I cannot find the restroom when I was walking on the street. I made a bunch of stupid mistakes when I just arrive here. So, on my map, I will put all these mistake I have made and how to solve it. I just want to other people who just arrive in Chicago could get familliar with this city quickly.
In addition, I have been to several interesting place. Such as several outdoor markets or some shops.My map of Chicago will made from my perspective for those people who just come here.
