Visiting Chicago to see my friend Anna was one of the best uses of a four day weekend I've ever had!
Loved the city, loved spending time with Anna & loved getting to see things that she loved about the city.
Like a pro, I took the train from the airport to meet her at her office. I may have memorized the route before getting off the plane so I wouldn't look TOO out of place ;)
Subway train...a completely new experience for me. Fun, confusing & forget personal space.
Enjoyed snapping a few shots of some murals that I would pass by on my tour of the city.
Anna knows there is at least one thing that can always easily please me: Good coffee.
Metropolis Roasters & Coffee house...so good! I bought a pound so I am still enjoying their coffee at home :)
This seagull just kept posing for me...
Another fantastic coffee shop. Yes, we went to two in one day. It was great.
You know it must be good coffee when the barista apologizes for his asymmetrical rosette. Yeesh.
Me & the Bean. I spy an Anna in the background.
And finally, we ended the day with Lyric Opera in the park. Opera makes me fall asleep, but the park was great & the concert was free. And they are super talented, but I just can't help it...It makes me want to curl up and sleep.
