Chicago Gallery

After some 30 hours of continuous travel, Saul and I arrived in a hot and sticky Chicago. Jet lag and Durban-style weather notwithstanding, we immediately started gorging ourselves on the urban delights on offer in the USA’s third-largest city. In 3 days, we managed to see 3 shows (blues, improv comedy and ballet), sampled art and architecture, did the requisite shopping (sexy underwear from Victoria’s Secret and sexier camera lenses from an Amazon locker tucked into the back of a 7-11) and ate Chicago-style deep-dish pizza at two of the famous deep-dish places. We took a few Uber and subway rides, but mostly we walked and walked under the blue skies and gleaming skyscrapers. And, of course, in the gritty alleys behind the polished facade.

    Have loads of fun.

    Cheryl, think about the fact that in Alaska, where we now are, I have to put on a down jacket, a rain jacket and hiking boots to go to the bathroom at night. That should help a bit with the jealousy!
