I’m a medical student from Pakistan, here on a hematology rotation. Everyday I wake up at 6am and take three trains and a bus to work, then take the same bus and trains back home. It’s an hour and 45 min each way. Today’s my birthday, I was celebrating with a classmate, but I miss home. I’ll be leaving here in two weeks. I’d enjoy Chicago more if it wasn’t so cold…and I just missed my stop.
