Trip to Chicago, Illinois

My first impressions of Chicago as a kid were brought on by cinema and television. Between “The Untouchables” and “Perfect Strangers”, I half believed the visit would include gangsters shooting tommy guns and a sheep herding weirdo from Meepos. None of these things were present though. Chicago is a cleaner and more precisely designed city than, say, New York City.

You've never seen a sculpture so big and shiny. I do not envy the person that has to polish this enormous hunk of metal. (Christopher John Sztybel)

We also visited the famous Billy Goat Tavern and enjoyed delicious CHEEZBORGERS.

One last photo before class is dismissed. CRAZY ASS RONALD MCDONALD! This maniacal bronze statue was placed in the middle of the sidewalk to terrorize passerby.
