Chicago

I recently spent two weeks in the United States.  I began my trip by meeting my friend Mary in Chicago.   Today I am going to tell you about Day 1 and Day 3.  There will be a separate post for Day 2 which was Frank Lloyd Wright day!

We started our first day by driving downtown to visit the Hull House.  There was a great view of the Chicago skyline from outside the house.


Chicago is on Lake Michigan  and we were able to get some great photos of the lake.



And this was the view back into the city.

The Airbnb we stayed in was very close to the Blue Line.  In fact it was just beyond the back yard!

On our third day together we took the Blue Line downtown.


We went to the Flower Show at Macys.  It wasn't a flower show in the sense that we think of them in the UK.  There were just amazing displays of flowers in the store.
 


Some parts of the building was amazing especially the ceiling in this atrium.
 




We had a wander downtown and went to the Chicago Architectural Center.



There was a model of Chicago and an exhibition about the tallest buildings in the world.

The river in Chicago.

I didn't take as many photos as I would usually do, because I had visited Chicago with Roger in 2017 when I took an enormous amount of photos.  If you haven't already seen them they are here, here, here and here.  A lot - I know!

Thanks for joining me today.
