The iPhone Road Trip
Who needs a computer when you've got hand-held technology!
iPhone Road Trip Day 1:
Today, my family and I embarked on a road trip from Detroit, Michigan, where I live, to Chicago, Illinois. I decided I would blog about my trip from my iPhone since it's too hard to carry a computer around with me on a 300 mile road trip. It's my summer experiment!
Once we reached Chicago, the first event of the day was Major League Baseball at U.S. Cellular Field. The Chicago White Sox hosted the Detroit Tigers and was due to begin at 1 p.m. Rain delayed the game until 4!
Once the game started, however, the Tigers didn't do so well. My hometown team lost 4-3 playing in the miserable rain and cold. On the bright side, I managed to get an autograph from Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello!
iPhone Road Trip: Day 2
Today was the second day of my family's trip to Chicago. We to see the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. The exhibit displayed more than 200 props and costumes from the Harry Potter moviesj, including Harry's wand, Hermione's robes, Ron's bed, and much more.
Listening to the audio tour, I learned about how much work went into making everything for the movies. Not only did the props have to look realistic, but they also had to be durable to last through all the movies. I would highly recommend the exhibit to any Harry Potter fan.
Later that night, we had a delicious dinner of Chicago style pizza at Gino's East. The pizza is one of the best parts of Chicago.
iPhone Road Trip: Final Day
I had a great time and learned a lot during my family's brief visit to Chicago. I leanred a lot everywhere we went.
I learned at the baseball game that the White Sox won the World Series in 2005.
We also toured the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. Based on what is seen in the films, the developers make creating all of the props and costumes look easy. This exhibit really shows how much work went into creating everything for the movies. I never realized how hard creating props could be. If any other Kid Reporters are in the area, they should go. I hope to return to Chicago soon.
