The night at O’Hare

with 10 comments


Camping at O'hare airport

This is not my first time spending the night in airport.

But this time is different. Kenneth and I were planning to go to downtown Chicago. However, because each of us had two pieces of luggage (so it’s 4 pieces in total), and there was no way we’d carry them on the subway and pull it all along on the street in Chicago, we ended up staying at the airport instead.

Thank god they have relatively inexpensive wireless hotspot in O’Hare ($6.95 for 24-hour access compared to some bloody places usually charge $3 per hour). So, here is how it goes, we took up two benches and totally made ourselves at home (well, at least Kenneth did). I roughly took 20 minutes nap that night and surf on the internet all the time. It was actually a quite fun experience ‘coz I never know there’d be so many other people at the airport at 3 in the morning (they are not surfing on the internet though, just taking nap).

I like this photo.

  5. 不過有無線網路陪伴真好,
    記得我之前的經驗是睡在行李轉盤邊邊,
    一次是呆坐在椅子上望著窗外的路燈發呆. Orz (羨慕中)

  10. I spent overnight at O’Hare twice, those were years ago. The first time they didn’t have those fixed bars with those bench, so I pulled two together and had a good night sleep, also took and a wiping “dry clean” (learned from army service years) in the bathroom later! But the second time was pain in the butt, they have those fixed bars on the bench so I couldn’t sleep well, and there was no wireless network at O’Hare back then, plus the air condition was kind of down after midnight… Anyway I will spend money for a hotel room next time, no more bench nights!
