Where I bean!

Cloud Gate

It’s been a kind of weird trip to Chicago – taking care of more personal issues than I had planned on. On the plus side, my shit is out of my friend’s basement—I do believe that I don’t have any remnants of life in stateside storage.

I guess I’m officially in Germany.

Cloud Gate — the whole bean thing!

Because of the personal shit, I haven’t had time to do that much “touristy” shit in Chicago. With my limited free time, I did make it to the Loop and visited what is probably Chicago’s most famous piece of art – the Cloud Gate.

Lots of interesting people watching in the area…

  • The cloud gate is one of the two things in Chicago that I didn’t manage to do while I was there. I went up in both of the towers, I stayed in the Drake, I saw the Blue Man Group, I saw Wicked when it was there. I’ve eaten a burger at Navy Pier. I saw the cloud gate from across the street, but my then-girlfriend was on a mission to shop, so we didn’t actually go see the bean. I regret this decision.

    The other of the two things is the bar in the Hancock tower- I didn’t know it existed until after we were gone. Harumph!
