Chicago Update

A few weeks ago, during my trip to Michigan I was able to visit Chicago for a couple of days, it felt like only a couple of hours though. Good friends of mine were getting married, but I still found time to wander around and visit some old and new places. First of all, there was a new crazy sculpture near the corner of state and Van Buren.There is famous quotes and logic engraved onto the base below the eye ball.

On my first walk south to the loop from River North I found on the corner of Wabash and Wacker piles of busted up concrete and though to myself someone should really clean this *stuff* up. I would of called the mayor, but did not have a cell phone on this trip.I found out later that evening they were actually filming Transformers 3...I should of known, that #65 Grand Bus sign should have never been south of the Chicago River. Everything else seems kind of normal.Seriously, it's not the first time I've seen a bus like that.

Everything else seems good too. The new Trump tower is up and running.Police are still relaxing.Fiesta Pizza is still fresh at Barry's Spot (this place has three stars on Yelp, that is bull).Kayaking on the Chicago river, these people probably started on North Ave.And of course, Chicago as seen from a boat!!Buckingham Fountain is also in really good shape.And trust me, the best way to get to and from the fountain is a Latino Express Bus, Ride It!
