Big City

We took Amtrak from Springfield up to Chicago the other day. Very pleasant ride, but Chicago was miserably hot, and on the street we scuttled frantically from shade to airconditioning like ants under a magnifying glass. It makes me tired thinking about it, so I'll just post some unoriginal (but you knew that) pictures.

View from the Sears Tower. Whatever. Last time the D-a-W and I were here in the spring of 2002, the observation deck was closed. I forget why.

It was a busy news day.


More shapes.

That's a fountain. It's like twenty stories tall and water cascades down its sides. You can get your picture taken and have it flashed on the thing for a second. Very weird. Big Brother is watching, and it's Urkel.
