I just had a four day whirl wind trip to Chicago. I won a bid at a client fundraising auction event back in February this year. As soon as I put my hand up I asked myself ‘what am I doing’. But what an amazing city and opportunity to see it. I have had many friends and colleagues say ‘Chicago, you have to go’, but didn’t imagine it to be so good. And sure…………………just try to resist not doing all the usual famous visitor sites that all the world makes daily pilgrimages to see, like all the public art in Millennium Park or Frank Lloyd Wright tours or the River Cruise. Resistance is futile……it’s that damn good. And it is what makes a great city like Chicago, Chicago. So the next few blogs are some bits n’ pieces. Cloud Gate…..or the Bean as it has been coined is a magnetic object people can’t avoid. It was one of the most crowded urban sites I have seen in a while.
