Trip to Chicago in the midst of the arctic freeze

Ahhh, Chicago… One of the best and funnest cities in the USA, in my humble opinion.  Here you can find absolutely anything and everything you can possibly think of.

I am not the only one who likes this city, clearly.  Even at 7am the airport is jam-packed. Of course, I get a chance to overpay for an undersized bagel just so I can watch and older couple fight at the table next to mine.

I love this city and I got extra lucky with the hotel view.  Amazing!

The other side of my window is not too bad, either, with the view of the lake.

Here’s a video of the view.  Nice!

Always good to run by the good ‘ol Twisted Spoke for a quick taste of whatever’s on the grill.

Hotels are all the same, no matter where in the world you are, right?

Freezing here, though.  Didn’t yet see snow in Philly—nice to spend a few days in it.  I prefer just the few days, not the rest of the winter, though :).  Don’t know about you but I like to have all four seasons.  Some seasons, just the overly-hot days of Summer and the overly-snowy days of winter I can keep to a minimum.

I don’t miss having to clean the street, either.

It’s 15ºF outside… The neighbors are grilling, in the snow!

No guns, please.  What’s with these signs all over the place?

Brrrr.

No, I definitely will not miss the 5ºF weather. No no no. Love it but love getting out of it, too.

XOXO
