Hey Chicago Whaddya Say?


I went to Chicago and it was amazing!

You can feel the friendly midwestern spirit as you walk down the streets:

There is public art everywhere:

Cloud Gate (a.k.a. The Bean) is like a portal to another dimension:

One of my favorite things about Chicago is the architecture. I went on a river boat architecture tour and it was super cool!

The terrace of Trump Tower makes you feel like you are dining with buildings:

The best building though was Sears Tower. I got to go in the glass box and could feel one of the tallest buildings in the world swaying and creaking in the wind.

And what is a trip to Chicago without a slice of deep dish pizza and a walk around Navy Pier?

Another highlight of the trip was a visit to the Chicago Art Institute. The art collection is grand with everything from ancient Eastern art to contemporary and modern art. I was starstruck to see so many of my favorite artworks in real life!

Wrigley Field was also a great experience (even though the Braves lost). It is a really cool stadium!



Chicago is a fabulous city and I can’t wait to go back!
