Everything in Chicago, Part 1

We walked about forty-seven miles yesterday, but we made a lot of progress toward our goal of seeing everything in Chicago in 36 hours. It was fun. If we could wrap up our experience in Chicago in a simple phrase it would be this: Chicago is neat!

Our first destination was that really famous fountain in Grant Park. But Lollapalooza got in our way. It was okay though. We got to listen to listen to DeVotchKa while we walked to Millennium Park. They are Karine's favorite band that she had never told me about until now.

Then we went to Millenium Park. I've wanted to go for years. I'm a big fan of public spaces and this on cost like $500 million. So I thought it should be pretty good. I was not disappointed.

The Bean. It crushed my expectations. Karine and I, huge bean fans.

Here we are in the bean.

I always like places that make you feel like you are in the future.

We walked along Lake Michigan to Navy Pier. These guys were all like, "Hey, wanna get on our boat?" We were all like, "...whatever."
