Botanical Garden

     [ RO] Botanical Garden este un loc minunat, insa iarasi am dat gres cu timpul ca si in postarea precedenta. Timpul ideal de a vizita este primavara cind florile sunt inflorite, din ceea ce ne-a fost spus. Totusi unele locuri sunt frumoase si vara, in special Japanese Garden.
Ps: intrarea este gratuita, se plateste doar parcarea 25$.
     [EN]Botanical Garden is a great place, but again we failed with time as in the previous posting. The ideal time to visit is spring when the flowers are blooming , from what we were told . However some places are beautiful in summer too, especially Japanese Garden.
Ps: entrance is free, you have to pay only the parking which is 25$.

The Power of Nature

     [RO] Saptamina trecuta am vizitat citeva locuri frumoase  atit in Chicago cit si in afara lui. Locuri unice in sinul naturii pentru cei ce prefera sa descopere orice coltisor frumos. In postarea de azi va arat 2 parcuri- Starved Rock State Park si  Matthiessen State Park -situate la citiva km unul de altul cu niste privelisti care-ti taie rasuflarea. Parcurile sunt situate in padure si au o multime de scari, sunt gratuite si au locuri speciale pt a face un picnic cu familia sau cu prietenii (am gasit chiar si niste casute care ospiteaza personele venite la un oarecare eveniment) . A fost o excursie lunga, dar placuta!  (Ps: ne-a fost recomandat sa le vizitam in timpul primaverii cind cascadele sunt in plina lor splendoare, caci vara sunt cam uscate ,fara apa.)
  Priviti pozele si nu ezitati sa mergeti sa le vizitati!

     [EN]Last week we visited some beautiful places both in and outside of Chicago . Unique places in the bosom of nature for those who prefer to discover every beautiful corner. In today's post l will show you 2 parks- Starved Rock State Park and  Matthiessen State Park located only few kilometers from each other with some breathtaking sights. Parks are located in the woods and have a lot of stairs , are free and have special places for a picnic with family or friends (we even found some houses that hospitalize persons coming to some event). It was a long excursion , but enjoyable ! (Ps :they recommended to visit these parks in the spring when the waterfalls are in their full splendor, because in summer are pretty dry , with no water.)
Enjoy the pics and don't hesitate to visit them!
