I lost my posting about Chicago...public transport, 10k, Petite Petit. WTF? I tried to add a photo and was unable to find the correct photo album. Then, I went to return to the posting and found a blank slate. Maybe it wasn't that interesting. Yet, I thought it was.
I mentioned how brilliant of a city Chicago is. I know I am not the only one that thinks this. It is a pleasureable city. User friendly, foodie, wine, beer bars and extremely accessible via public transport. We took the El everywhere and it was great. Cheap and effective. Who wouldn't enjoy Chicago?
I had photos to illustrate how lovely it is....food, wine and of course, land scape shots. I have no idea what happened or why I am experiencing difficulty with posting.
Just know this....I had a divine time with Sara Jo. My third visit. Her first. I think she fell in love with it, though. It's easy to...in the summer. I think the winters would be harsh and unbearable to me. I love the sun to doom and gloom. Plus, it's cold. Bone chilling cold that I am not used to. I think I prefer visiting to living. Maybe a friend of mine will relocate there and soon.
We took the el, walked or rode in cabs to explore the city. Lovely. We dined at Charlie Trotter's, a cuban/latin inspired cafe, eno, purple pig and le colony. I would have loved to have more time to check out other eateries. I felt fortunate to have dined at Trotter's--such an iconic place for fine dining/cuisine. Moreover, I was with someone that appreciated the experience as much as I did. I really enjoyed that.
I must figure out what happened to the previous post. My thoughts were more focused. I think the heat is effecting me. More later...
