ChicagoPosted: January 22, 2013
I’m definitely traveling much faster than I’m writing these. (I’m in Kansas City right now.) Posting on my phone is doable, but not super convenient. Packing a month into one backpack definitely meant not bringing a computer.
Chicago: amazing. I now want to live here someday. Got a nice hotel on Grant park, real cheap using the Priceline app, doing the name your own price thing; definitely the way to go.
When I got off the train I was right in front of the Willis tower (formerly the Sears tower), so I went straight for there. As you can see above, they have little glass box extensions so you can dangle 103 stories above: scary but awesome. Took a trolley tour around the city too.
Ate lots of pizza: Lou Malnati’s and Pizano’s. I wouldn’t want it to replace normal thin crust pizza, but delicious nonetheless. (That’s probably how people here feel about thin crust?)
Saw Sue, the largest and most complete T-rex ever found. The Field museum was really great all around.
Next up: Milwaukee!
