Where are the Americans?

I just returned to the Midwest after a month of traveling through Australia and Hawaii.

A Brit and Aussie's Visit to Millennium Park | Finding Chicago

Recently, Jack from Chicago Aussie and Laurence had what he has affectionately called 'bro time' at Millennium Park. It apparently made for a decent "arvo", as they say. We hope you enjoy it; if you'd like to see Lost in the Pond do some more collaborations with fellow expats or even Chicago locals be sure to comment on the video and let us know. In the meantime, happy (virtual) travels!
