Tourists at home Narrative by Chris Born-Long
Next pageWe Born-Longs are both Chicago born and reared. Even though we've now lived half our lives in Texas, the Windy City is still our home town, and a grand one it is. We had visited there way back in 1997. We had a great time then, and it was time to go again. So in May 2009, we made a road trip to Chicago to act like tourists and see all the sights. I still have two cousins in the city, so a visit with them was definitely on the agenda as well. Our first stop, though, was in Columbia, Missouri, to see some old friends.
