I'm Back from Chicago!

Recommended Posts

Well, I had a great spring break!  I'm back from visiting my Aunt in Palos Hills, about 20 miles from Chicago.  I had a good visit, and went to several places, including downtown, the zoo, Joliet prison, Chinatown, and more.  I've included a few pics.

Here is downtown.

Chinatown!

These wild animals are frequent throughout the city, not sure what they are...

Joliet Prison, where the scene from the Blues Brothers movie was filmed.

Anywhere, that's where I've been!  Thanks for looking.

Sounds like you had a good trip. You weren't too far from me either. You could has visited the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) campus where those stupid birds will fly right into you.

SWMBO and I spent a few days in Chicago last summer.  I'm a small town boy, but we loved Chicago.  The Art Institute itself made the trip worthwhile.

While we were there we took an architecture boat tour.  That was another thing I would recommend to anyone visiting Chicago.  That, and Lou Malnatti's Pizza.

Just kidding.  I bought a Cubs shirt while I was out there.   8-)

I work out of Chicago and it was blowing over 40mph on Tuesday when we were leaving for Japan and Korea. That could blow your skirt up.

I am a Cards fan, but always love seeing a game at Wrigley, just a great place to be regardless of who you are rooting for ;)
