Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

Chicago, Here I Come!


via wikipedia


I leave for the airport at 4:30 am tomorrow morning and instead of packing, like I should be, I am blogging. That’s just how I roll.

I am very excited to be visiting the Windy City, although I am holding out hope it isn’t all that windy, at least while we are there.

We have lots on the agenda but I am beginning to think that we will ultimately find ourselves walking around taking pictures until we get tired, at which point we will find a good place to eat and, most importantly, people watch! A. and I enjoy some good people watching. Take our trip to Scotland, for example. We were sitting facing the windows in a little coffee shop in Edinburgh (maybe it was Glasgow, I forget) when a bus pulls up outside and a little old lady gets off and starts screaming at the driver, makes weird hand gestures/points, and then proceeds to spit on the sidewalk. It was clear she was putting a curse on him. It was intense! Man, I heart Scotland!

I digress…

Our first two nights will be spent at the historic Palmer House. Let me tell you, this place looks a-m-a-z-i-n-g! It is a well know Chicago landmark and has a fascinating history. It also just underwent a 170 million dollar renovation. Apparently it’s the “Chicago hotel the world knows best.” It looks pretty darn swanky:

Our last two nights will be at the Chicago Hilton. It doesn’t look too shabby either:

My camera is going to get a workout this week, that is for sure! I am hoping my wallet, on the other hand, does not!

Be prepared for a total photo dump and multiple posts when I get home.

Aw, vacations. Is there anything better?

Talk to ya’ll next week (well, maybe late Sunday night if I am up to it).
