Default Chicago

Well here I am, posting while i'm sitting in the hotel in Chicago. This is pretty much my first time in Chicago, and i'm impressed
We got lost quite a few times downtown trying to figure out how to get to the hotel, we even had a gps and still got lost, luckly it rerouted us everytime, and we got to the hotel just fine.

My brother is on his way over (he lives in the chicago area) and he'* going to give us a tour around, maybe go see the Sears tower or something.

My mom drove into chicago, but she HATED it so most likely when we go tomorrow to my bros drs apt (the reason we're here) i'll probably be driving, thats gonna be fun :P

This is our first time in a big city at all, i live in a town of 10,000 people so this is quite the change...

The Sears tower is pretty cool if you aren't afraid of heights. When I was there it had a bar at the top with an awesome view.
There is also a science museum that is worth seeing as well. The web site says it'* closed the 9th through 11th and doesn't open again until Saturday, so if you are still there this weekend admission is free.
I hope your brother'* appointment goes okay.
Just say No to panhandlers.
