A new favorite! Traveling... Chicago!

My first time in the windy city a few weeks ago and I went a little picture crazy!

I am officially in love with Chicago! I can't stop thinking about it's little neighborhoods, the Vietnamese market, the Polish deli or the large Italian family that showed us so much kindness.
Walking down the Magnificent Mile or to the Navy pier, even in such tourist places there is a grand sense of community.

I was completely overwhelmed by the architecture, the history and the river. Obviously the food was amazing, from the ubiquitous Chicago Dog to the unexpected Mexican Cantina Decero on Peoria and the lovely meal we had at Noha.

Surprising elements included the playfulness of people at the Bean in Millennium Park, witnessing the Chicago critical mass and the comical feeling of walking around Gotham City at night!

It's Gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight!
