Fun and Learning in Chicago

by Samuel Sennott

There is much to say about the terrific time experienced at the ASHA Convention 2009 in Chicago this past week.  It was terrific to be with friends in Chicago.  From being picked up at the airport by a family who facilitated me coming to consult at her daughter’s school to stumbling upon the famous Gino’s and eating deep dish pizza with a friend, to walking Chicago, to the terrific people met at the convention, I enjoyed the experience thoroughly.  All of the fun seemed to help the learning sink in deeper.  Overall, I was very much impressed with the beauty of downtown Chicago.  Plus for me as a house music fan it was a special experience to visit the place where the term house music was formed.  Yet, before I get to the technical, here is a visual review of some of the experience.

  2. I wish I could have stayed the extra day to see more of Chicago. Looks like you got to a lot of places on Sunday.

  3. Adam,

    Good reason to go back, right? Plus you’d enjoy the sights more with your wife. 🙂

  4. ASHA consistently falls on Gina’s birthday, too. This is going to be an ongoing issue with our relationship.
