Chicago

The train to Chicago was three hours late. Yes three hours. Got here at rush hour...oh joy. Got checked in at Embassy Suites after a slow cab ride downtown. I love my suite. It overlooks Navy Pier and the Lake. Soon after I got here we had a huge storm with lots of hail which looks really cool from the 8th floor. I gave her some time to get settled and then called my travelling companion, 6 floors above me. We took a cab to Greek Town and ate at Athena, a place I had eaten with Kristin Weed a few years ago. Laura had never had Greek food so she got a sampler platter and I got shrimp and swordfish on pasta with a butter and lemon sauce. The remainder now sits in my little fridge. Afterward we hit Dugans Irish Pub just down the street and had a couple pints of Goose Island Ale. She'd never had beer before either. She liked it but thinks she likes wine better. Got back to the hotel around 10 pm. A nice and pretty room service girl just brought me a pint of Haagen Dazs Dulce de Leche ice cream. I love room service. Particularly when someone else is paying for it. Tomorrow after classes, I'm going to find a nice blues bar and sit and drink and listen to the blues.

Peace,

Wander

AAahh the blues. My favorite. Don't know a good blues bar in Chicago as I haven't been in ages.
Hope you find a good one.
