I took the bus down to the beautiful city of Chicago and I was able to spend a few days there this last week before flying to New York.  Two things are for certain: 1)I should never transport extended distances via bus.  I’m not sure why I even consider it at this point and 2)I love Chicago!

It has been a solid three years since my last visit…this is just not acceptable.  I stayed with the very generous Jen+Carl, in their apartment that is basically my dream home. We had an excellent time! There was java. There was Svenskar. The was Van Gogh. There were selfies. There were old and new friends. There were memories. There were walks in awesome fall weather. Cheers to Chicago!
