I know you are all wondering…where are all the pictures from the drive through Ohio and Indiana. Let me paint you a picture. Flat, grassy…uneventful. Those states were painful. I stayed in intermittent prayer, pleading for a hill or building to break up the monotony. So it came as a surprise when we finally got close to the city. But the ascension wasn’t at all what I had expected. The usual suburban sprawl was non-existent. Just hundreds of power lines feeding the city surrounded by tattered, weathered factories reminiscent of the industrial revolution. It took about twenty minutes before we began to funnel into the cities interstate system, and boom…the skyline came into focus. And what a skyline.
Cloud Gate aka “the bean” was incredible. Mimicking the distortion of liquid mercury, the bean warps, and multiples all reflections. But be careful! One false move and this reflection could become your reality. The bean is the only portal we know of that provides a connection to this warped parallel universe.

This beautiful bean couple were trying to take a picture of us. We kept our distance making sure not to disturb the delicate divide that stood between us and them.
The number of Sperry top-siders worn in Chicago must be high.
We tried to join a yacht club but were disqualified due to our car.
Wifey took this one. She’s so talented. I think she has a promising career as a photographing nurse. In all seriousness, the restaurant we went to that night was incredible. Its called Uncommon Ground. It’s organic. It has a rooftop garden, or as they like to say, a rooftop farm. It has outdoor seating. But the best part was the smash burger. If your in Chicago, and want a mean, health charged burger…check out Uncommon Ground. You won’t be disappointed.
We love you, Chicago!
