Peter and I maximized our weekend by going to
Chicago the following day after our trip to Boston. Just like Boston,
transportation around Chicago was very accessible via
CTA and there was a subway stop
at the airport itself. Day pass was available at the counter for
unlimited bus and train pass for 24 hours.
As usual, we got off at downtown and we
immediately went to Sears Tower.
It was such a massive building and very impressive.
We walked along downtown square and Chicago was "very Chicago" due to its architecture. I felt the aura of Al
Capone, days of prohibition, and the movies Untouchables and Chicago.
At that time, Chicago had a festival along
shore drive at Lake Michigan. I made fun of the brass statue of Bob
Newhart, who I did not know who he was. It was just because of the brass
We had lunch at Bubba Gumps by the lake
shore. After that, back to Toronto.
