The car has been on autopilot to Union Station with a full weekend of friends and family coming and going and coming. One of the nicest parts of having guests is that I get out and show them around town and in the process, I’m getting to know some of the perks of living in this city. Over the weekend we took the architectural tour up and down the Chicago River and I got a whole new perspective on the downtown area. I took lots of pictures; now I just need to link them up to the names of buildings. Tonight I’m enjoying my son before he heads out on his European tour- they’ll be in Sevilla, Spain and Paris and London and, oh, about 9 other cities.
