Chicago, The Windy City

My Plane was just landing, soon after, I grabbed my cabin luggage, going through crowded people, to find where the blue line. After going back and forth, I found concourse tunnel with a long walkway and colorful sparkly lighting. Thought that it was on purpose of having a special event, later not to be. Blue Line, a train going from O’Hare Intl’ Airport run through the heart city of Chicago, is one of over 6 other color line connecting different part of the city.

40 minutes later, I was already at the Jackson red and turn to other line to Chicago red.   Not as fast as other subway in other city, has issue during rush hour but it is reliable in time.

City view from Willis Tower( was Sears Tower)

What this city has on their city scape? Here are the list :

1. Skydeck on Willis Tower- was Sears Tower

Image

Sit on the glass deck, no seen of any steel or concrete structure hold on the glass but it does the perfect stucture so far

2. John Hancock- these two building are the highest skyscraper in the US

Image

one of the tallest skyscraper in US, has the luxurious restaurant at 95 th floor while you can see city view from the top

3. Millenium Park – where you can find the bean, the water fountain, the Chicago Art Institute with the bridge

Image

The Bean actually an architectural shape mimicking the bean shape, made by stainless but having reflector surface thus you can see tower view at Bean

Image

just like a high wall, water coming down from the top of the wall, the bottom is not like basin except just flat thus people do put of their shoes and wash their feet with the water, specially kids.

Image

Nice institute that you can find Picaso collection, only if you have money to pay the tickets since the price is quite high

4. The Buckingham Fountain- I guess it is resembling the real Buckingham palace fountain.
