Eating history

Today was my “graduation” from the Rush University Medical Center chaplaincy internship program. The most fascinating three month experience of my life! To celebrate, we interns, along with our supervisor and supervisor in training, ate at a Chicago landmark, The Berghoff Restaurant in downtown Chicago that has been around since 1898 in a wonderful historic building. We all took the L train back to Rush together from one of the oldest train stations still in existence.

I appreciated the history lesson, still available. I told one of the other chaplain interns that Spokane has a god tradition, too, of appreciating and saving old landmarks. Guess this means I'm getting ready for the return home. See you all soon!
