Off to Chicago . . .

Will be enjoying Chicago over the next few days. It's one of my favorite places and I'm looking forward to it, like visiting an old friend. The Art Institute, Crown Fountain, the Lake, Second City, etc. Last year when I was there I saw a fascinating exhibit on Charles Darwin at The Field Museum. I love The Field.

Here's a picture of Cloud Gate (or "the bean") at Millennium Park (another great place) that I took last year:



Come and show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning. ~ Carl Sandburg

Have a great time.
Love the Bean pic. Not too many people get shots of it at night. Very cool.
Looking forward to hearing all about it when you get back.

That is a nice night shot.

The bean gets some time in the lead video at wherethehellismatt.com.

Enjoy Chicago! An awesome place, for sure. And maybe an upcoming Olympic host.

Chicago, chicago that toddling town
Chicago, chicago Ill show you around - I love it
Bet your bottom dollar youll lose the blues in chicago
The town that billys sunday could not shut down

On state street that great street I just want to say
They do things that they dont do on broadway - say
They have the time the time of their life
I say a man and he danced with his wife
In chicago, my home town

Have a good time, sis!
