“Shimmying” just plays nicely with “Chicago”.
Truth: One can’t dance along Michigan Avenue’s busy walkways; especially on a Saturday. But gusts in the Windy City are easily deemed irrelevant (when in possession of a good wind breaker) if one focuses on the delightful sights along the short walk from Grand Station to Millennium Park.
The Bean, I’m almost ashamed to say, was the highlight of my day. Many, specifically locals, would question the fascination a metallic, over-sized legume draws. The practical engineer (in me) would agree with these rational skeptics; the same engineer was simply amused as she was able to take pictures of the scene behind her.

These days, walking downtown is so much less appealing – given sub-zero temperatures and high winds. But with summer a few months away, a trip back would be worth it perhaps?!?
My thanks to Ricky, the cool breh (he’s Jamaican), who went out of his way to show me around on November 10, 2013.
