I recently picked up temp work assisting the tour buses for a convention. After close to two years of a covid hiatus it felt both great and a little odd to be walking the halls of McCormick Place, chatting with old coworkers, and grabbing overpriced Starbucks coffee. I helped the driver navigate and review schedule changes. We drove through various parts of Pilsen on a rainy, dreary day. I had a really good conversation with the driver about her emigration here from Cuba as a child, and shared my own experiences moving to the US at the age of 4.
Our last stop was at the National Museum of Mexican Art. It had always been on my list of places check out, so I was very excited! Fortunately, I was able to join the tour, learn about the history, and witness some really great works of art. Our tour guide did a wonderful job of really painting a vivid and personal picture of the artists and different pieces.
I hope everyone enjoys seeing these works of art as much as I did.
