Where I Was
The Other Reader & I took a trip to Chicago last week, my home town and where we met. It was my first time back in a few years. We visited friends, and wandered around and were tourists.
|The Glessner House. The neighbors didn't like it, I wonder why...|
|A more typical Prairie Avenue mansion|
|The Baha'i Temple. This was the limit of my bike rides when I was a kid.|
|The Hippos and Rhinos Bridge! The Hippos and Rhinos Bridge! As my friend excitedly shouted...|
|Bridge detail. Note hippo, rhino.|
|The South Shore Cultural Center, where Barack and Michelle held their wedding reception. But not before a certain other couple...|
|The CTA stop near a friend's. Not my neighborhood, but much more like where I grew up than all those other pictures. One of only three CTA stops at grade level, announced my friend, an engineer.|
I did some Chicago reading and posts in preparation for the trip!
I signed up for #20BooksOfSummer at 746Books. Will I read twenty books this summer? Oh, probably. Will they be exactly those twenty books? Hmm... But they're all such good books!
And how about you?
