Chicago, Day #2 – The Shedd Aquarium

Sunday morning. We thought we’d stay at the aquarium just a couple of hours. We ended up staying the whole day, and I could had stayed longer. I loved the place. Except, strongly except, the small tanks with mammals. I’m not a fan of mammals being kept in captivity and trained for “our entertainment” and I can get really bitter about it. So I won’t ever start. Everything else was really cool.

Domingo de manhã. Eu pensei que nós ficaríamos no aquario apenas umas duas horinhas. Acabamos ficando o dia inteiro, e eu poderia ter ficado mais. Adorei o lugar. Exceto, fortemente exceto, os pequenos tanques dos mamíferos. Eu não sou fã de mamíferos presos em cativeiro e treinados para “nosso entretenimento” e eu fico bem azeda com isso. Mas eu nem vou começar a falar sobre isso. Todo o resto foi bem legal.

If you are having something to eat at the Aquarium, their Big Burrito is super awesome! We loved it!😉

Se vocês forem comer alguma coisa no Aquário, o Big Burrito deles é sensacional! Nós adoramos!😉

I feel in love with the Beluga Whale, what a gracious animal! But this one in particular was behaving strangely, crearly not happy with her captivity.

~~~~~

Eu me apaixonei pelas baleias Belugas, que animais graciosos! Mas essa em particular estava se comportando de forma estranha, claramente não estava feliz com o cativeiro.

I did a few touchy-touchy experiences. The starfishes felt super funny and weird, and their tank temperature was -25ºC. There was the sting ray experience as well, which was interesting, their leathery body is beautiful.

Tinham alguns tanques em que você podia tocar em estrelas do mar, esturjões e arraias. Estrelas do mar são meio gosmetinhas, bem estranho, e o tanque delas estava com temperatura de -25ºC… quase perdi os dedos kkkk. A experiência com as arraias foi interessante também.

After we left the aquarium, we went to “The B.L.U.E.S.” pub to watch a blues presentation. It was one of the most amazing things we did in Chicago as well! So much fun! Such powerful voices! I wish I had taken photos though😛

Depois do aquário, nós fomos ao bar the B.L.U.E.S para assistir uma apresentação de blues. Foi uma das coisas mais legais que fizemos em Chicago! Foi super divertido! Que vozes! Eu devia ter tirado fotos😛
