Sunday Special – Chicago, U.S.A.

The Windy City. The Second City. Birthplace of the skyscraper and a city filled with some great architecture. Home to deep-dish pizza, Italian beef sandwiches and Chicago-style hotdogs where ketchup on a ‘dog is unheard of. Add a thriving theatre district, funky neighbourhoods, museums and art everywhere plus a waterfront view of Lake Michigan and you have my new favourite U.S. city.  
I just returned from a 4-night trip to this iconic city. My first visit (and definitely not my last) was filled with sight-seeing, meeting new friends and sampling a few of CHI-Town’s local foods and brews. Despite the chilly February weather (and surprising lack of snow buildup due to a milder winter) it was a perfect getaway to breakup my winter and a great ending to my vacation time. I’ll let my photos tell the rest of the story.
