A few weeks ago I got to spend some time in Chicago – easily my favourite US city! It was a joy to wander around this beautiful city, taking in the incredible architecture, despite the freezing cold temperatures. Wind chill was taking it out of me majorly! I stayed with Hannah, whom I met briefly last time I was here – she has the craziest, hectic lifestyle, yet she also has such a heart for people and will make time for you regardless of what is going on. It was a real blessing to get to know her a bit more!
I took in some of the main sights, including Millennium Park, the Bean, Soldier Field, and Michigan Avenue. Not to mention lunch at Eds! Thanks to ‘Free February’ I got to take in the Art Institute of Chicago one day, well worth a visit.
I also went to the Museum of Contemporary Photography, at Columbia College, to take in some excellent photography, especially an exhibition titled ‘This Land Is Your Land’ offering diverse perceptions of the United States.
