Chicago is an interesting city...probably with the best downtown in US. The downtown architecture is jawdropping, the vastness of Lake Michigen is to be seen to be believed. One of the buildings in downtown is so humongous, it used to have its own zip code. Michigen Avenue is shoppting paradise with a line up of all the exclusive (and expensive) brand outlets. So we did lots of window shopping. The sheer size of downtown buildings and vastness of Lake Michigen reminds one of our minuscule existintance in the bigger scheme of things . We were lucky to get a beautiful sunset on the first evening, the second evening was comparatively bland but the beautiful fireworks compensated for it.
