WEDNESDAY ARRIVAL

CHINATOWN
At the end of our 2,000 km journey from Manitobawe arrive at entrance to the Windy City
- The Nine Dragons Wall -
Modeled after the most sophisticated wall in BeiHai (North Sea) Park in Beijing,
the Chinatown mural replicates the large dragons and over 500 smaller dragons painted in red, gold and blue
signifying the Chinese focus on good fortune.

FIELD MUSEUM
We carry on through bumper-to-bumper "rush" hour traffic to downtown Chicago
where we encounter another walled area which has preserved a small remnant of Pal-ul-don wildlife.

DINNER GATHERING
We are too late to join many of crew for the planned event at Safari Land,
but we are in time for an informal gathering in the hotel dining room.
As more and more ERBers arrive we add more tables
until our giant table pretty much fills the room -
with special guests George McWhorter at one end and
the ERB, Inc. contingent from Tarzana at the other end:
(L-R: Willie Jones | Janet Mann | Cathy Wilbanks | Jim Sullos)


A night's rest and then on to the first stop of the day -
THE HUCKSTER ROOM
- where fans are filing in to register and peruse the collectibles on display.
