that time we took the chunnel from paris to london for just 24 hours to visit my nephew and his partner. expensive and crazy but what a day. a magical day.
i loved the architecture in Chicago. if you have a chance, read this book which is set in the time of the Chicago Wold Fair in 1893. it was harrowing but i read it just before our trip and i kept thinking about that time and its history while i walked around the city. Chicago officially became a city in 1837 and it shows its age beautifully.
