Views from Sears Tower ...

 

Bean on Millenium Park

Water Tower

All green for St Patrick's Day

Me, Karl and Laurence celebrating St Patrick's Day


Headed downtown and walked around - taking in the Sears Tower, the Chicago Board of Trade, the Art Institute (amazing collection) and Millennium Park (with the 'bean').

And being St Patrick's Day, many people were wearing green - and the fountains were dyed green (though unfortunately the famous Parade and the dying of the Chicago River green had taken place at the weekend).

For lunch we sampled deep-dish pizza - incredibly filling - we could only eat half of a small one between us!

In the evening we went out with Karl - a guy we'd met in Hawaii .. and, I regret to say, I got very drunk - which might be traditional for St Patrick's Day, but boy did I regret it the next day.
