Sunny Chicago

Wow today was a long day. Got up at 5:30am to drive to Seattle, to then fly to Minneapolis, and then fly to Chicago.

Here was the view in Seattle. It rained most of the way there. So needless to say I wasn’t too sad to leave that crap.

It was my first time back on Minnesota soil in 8 years. It was a short lived hour and half though. I feel like we bonded Minnesota…it had been too long.

It was great too because on the flight from Minneapolis to Chicago I sat right in front of the Dalai Lama. I am totally not joking. Here is him ordering some food at the airport restaurant by our gate. Full body orange robe, weird orange hat, and even weirder bag. It had to be him.

So, we made it to the house we are staying at, in time to watch the 2nd half of game 3 of the NBA Finals. Not only did we get to watch the 2nd half, but we got to watch it on the wholesome goodness that is HD. It is even better than being at home because this is a 37 inch lcd screen.

So that is day 1 of the Willow Creek trip. Tomorrow the conference begins at 7:30am. Ouch! I’ll be posting on Robbie Seay, Brian McLaren, and Gilles Ste-Croix (a high up guy for Cirque du Soleil). Oh and just an FYI, it is supposed to be 82 and sunny here tomorrow. I’m pretty sure that beats the weather in Portland 🙂

Now that I’ve hung out with the Dalai Lama…who is a famous person you have met?
