Hurtin’ Albertan meets the Windy City – Chicago

The folks took us to see “the Bean” in Chicago.  At first walking up to it I was thinking, “Why does this exist?”  but then it was SO mesmerizing we could hardly tear ourselves away!

This was an interesting fountain, that wasn’t running at the moment… but the faces change every few minutes.

Tons of amazing old architecture with stonework.

and, really high skyscrapers with long long long fire escapes

Of course while there we HAD to have deep dish pizza at Gino’s in old town, even if it meant standing in the cold for 45 min to get in.  We left our marks.

And a couple of ducks.

What would a visit to Chicago be without a picture of the skyline.

      you could probably live there for years and not see everything… this was SO quick… there was the art museum that we missed that I can’t wait to see next time… the natural history museum, the planetarium, the shedd aquarium, the navy pier… SO MUCH MORE!
