We keep this love in a photograph. We made these memories for ourselves. :)
We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing Collapse gaze lovingly
Our hearts hearts were never broken never experience the pain of a broken heart dripping
And times forever frozen still, the moment stays in time, the screen freezes
So you can keep me
inside the pocket of your ripped jeans, let the memory go back in the photo, and penetrate into your skin through your pants pocket inch
Holding me closer until our eyes meet embraced until that moment the intersection of the line of sight

I had heard of Chicago deep cheese pizza, so decided to take the light rail to the good business Lou Malnati's Pizzeria.

This is my American first meal to eat, and really very different domestic meal, the waiter will first ask what to drink, then had a long time to not hungry, will be ordering, checkout time is slow, first Give the original price invoice of the food, and finally give a tip~ After a meal, it’s really a protracted battle.

The last of Chicago that impression:
visit five cities City favorite Seattle and Chicago Because these two cities do not rely on the luxurious concrete forests or the prosperous cities like other metropolises to win, Chicago has its own unique architectural complex and urban history. Although the April wind is a bit biting, it is far Without concealing its own charm, Chicago cleverly combines beautiful architecture, original natural beauty and full artistic atmosphere.
There is a saying: Chicago itself is an attraction, you don't need to look for it specially, as long as you spend the time, you will love it.
So in April to Chicago now, there may be unexpected April snow, stroll Chicago , Hear the Wind Sing.
