I never intended to go to Chicago. I’ve been before and was not desperate to go back so it wasn’t on my list for the year. But a friend in need is a friend indeed. And my lovely friend Liora had some people cancel on her, so I stepped in and booked flights to Chicago…on my phone…on a bus to Vermont…drunk.
I know I know, I’m a saint.
I have a confession…this post is almost a year late, so I’ve basically forgotten everything we did and saw.
What I can tell you is:
-deep dish pizza is kind of a let down (especially when you have to wait an hour for it)
-it’s not called the windy city because it’s windy but actually, it’s really windy
-the bean is cool but it’s underwhelming – 20 minutes max needed
-the architecture boat tour is great (but bring a coat – see point above). My favourite bit was the all you can eat cookies and coffee
-chicago has awesome buildings
-it has good food
-the glass box thing is very high and kind of scary
