My mother and I saw Madonna when we went on a trip to Chicago.
It was the worst trip of my life.
First, the people there were rude and the homeless population was out of control. I actually got accosted by a homeless man at a subway. Second, the concert was awful. Madonna basically just talked and laid around on stage. Next, the food gave us food poisoning and our hotel was dirty. My poor money lay on the bathroom floor sick while I had diarrhea in a public restroom. We vowed never to go back to Chicago. Well one of our favorite bands came to Chicago. The two of us were hesitant. I decided it wasn’t going to be like last time. The first thing I did was not book us in the city. I got us an airbnb in Elgin Illinois. It was a nice house in a little town 45 minutes outside of Chicago. I figured I would rather rent a car than be in the city again. It was such a great decision. The two of us loved our stay. We did the concert and walked around the city for one day. The concert was great and it was worth the trip. The other two days the two of us stayed in Elgin. The area was adorable and so nice. It was clean, friendly and safe. The two of us hung around our rental just chatting most of the day. We also went in the summer so the Illinois weather was really nice. If I go back to Illinois, I am staying in Elgin.
