I wanted to take a quick break from the Europe Trip series to post this impromptu video I made yesterday. As a Jew, every year Christmas brings an inevitable spell of boredom and understimulation. Since we abstain from celebrating the holiday, yet still live in a Christian country where offices, schools, and stores all close their doors, we find ourselves in the unique situation of having several days of complete freedom, but very little to do within that time (aside from the traditional Chinese dinner and a movie).
So early Christmas morning, I decided to visit some of Chicago’s most heavily trafficked areas to see what they would look like in the absence of humanity. The video starts in Wicker Park, moves downtown to the Loop, then along Wacker Drive, and then up Michigan Avenue, then back to the Loop, and finally returning to Wicker Park. Enjoy.
