Remember Windy City

DSCN4234

Hi everyone!!! Today I’m very crafty, thinking about new ideas and projects, but good memories are always there. I just wanted to share a little part of me in Chicago. The cleanest largest city I ever been to!!! Hopefully my experience helps you to make any decision when travelling over there 🙂

First of all I gotta admit Chicago was a little bit expensive… at least more expensive than Ohio. Hotel was OK, but that room was seriously super small!!! We were downtown (Obviously). We did have a lot of time, but we’re lazy so actually we didn’t do as much as other tourists do lol

We went to Hancock Center Observatory and Willis Tower… I would say Willis Tower experience was much better. Those glass balconies are pretty fun. You have a very nice restaurant at Hancock building so you can eat and have the same view (check restaurant prices and DRESS CODE!!!). We actually didn’t do it ‘cas we were looking for a Chill out place (We ended up in Hard Rock Cafe)

Here’s my pic in a glass balcony. I don’t look great but I want you all see I did it!!! (scary)

It was really good… As good as the steak we had in Vegas (Eiffel Tower Restaurant-Paris Hotel)… If I still remember after 2 years, it is ‘cas it was REALLY GOOD 🙂 Just two more comments about the Chop House: First, Al Capone used to eat there, or that’s what we’d heard and Second, service needs to slow down, I guess I’m not ready for that kind of “energetic service”

I would have another in two years… As a friend of mine would say: five seconds of pleasure in your mouth, and the rest of your life on your hips…644640_10151138593314221_1309116606_nlook at this monster baby…

More things about Chicago…. it’s windy and lovely

To feel the wind there’s nothing better than Navy Pier

430121_10151138665644221_392909230_nI seriously made so many pictures on that cruise that I  just will let you take yours….

Just don’t miss the opportunity to walk over the city… It will surprise you all you can find just around the corner 😀
