Chicago, IL 60611
Early Monday I left for Chicago via Delta flight getting a connection in ATL. By the time I arrived in MDW the weather from TLH to MDW has changed so much. It was a bright but blustery day with temperatures ranging from mid 30s to mid 40s. We picked a SUV (with a Garmin GPS Navigator) and exchanged the correct one at ORD and headed to Northwestern University, Downtown Campus, Chicago, IL.
Our host was waiting for us and we completed our official work well after our lunch time. Then we took some time for lunch. By the time we came back the host had some work to do and our work was complete and so we headed to Hotel Affinia Chicago, a block away.
Later that evening, we walked slowly on the Lake Shore Drive, two blocks from the University, toward Navy Pier. We spent some time at the Navy Pier and the surrouning park. After dinner we drove to Millenium Park and saw "The Bean" and the "The Face". Then later that night we went to John Hancock Building Observatory and saw the view of the city at night.
