Short Trip to Chicago

The Bean in Chicago

A few days before my winter vacation I had to ship some parts for a friend to Chicago. The last few times I was there in summer. Now it was winter and that did not make it as pleasant as usually. Still lucky the 1st day I was walking downtown – blue sky and some sun.
I had friends from Australia staying at my place and my farewell party the night before the flight. So there where only a few hours of sleep. Herb shipped the Australians to the train station and then we where off to the airport.
Blue sky and sun – great day to fly!

They build a second ice skating ring. Quite long and in the middle of it a few climbing constructions. I like how the park gets bigger.

Chicago 2011

Have my flight in the afternoon. Maria will bring me to the Blue Line – that saves me a long ride on the train down town. As i did book the flight less than 12 hours before take off i now have to stop one time in New York – to bad. The last few times i had a nice non stop to Frankfurt.
Looks like Irene will not spoil the trip – than again – as long as Delta is nice and gives me a hotel – i would not mind to visit my friends there!
