The Windy City

Sure is windy here… The lake-effect wind is blowing rather briskly through the streets here in Chicago. It’s almost like another winter, which is fine with me, but not quite so wonderful for Laura.

We’ve arrived here safely in Chicago at the beginning of our much-needed vacation. I’ll be showing her some of my favorite restaurants and we’ll go touring here together – something I really didn’t get to do before as I was here to work.

I know what you’re probably thinking: “Hasn’t this guy complained endlessly about the amount of travel he does? So what does he do on vacation but hop on yet another airplane?!?!” Yeah – I think I’m crazy, too. One reason I liked the job in the beginning is that I love travel – I have discovered that I want to do it on my terms. So: barely a day’s turnaround and I’m back out of Houston and off to Chicago. I’m hoping to take some really good pictures of the city with the new wide-angle lens Laura got me for our anniversary. I know I’ll be playing with my new toy…

Of course, the real difficulty I’ll have here is choosing which restaurants to go to and which of my old favorites I have to pass up…
