Route: Chicago Riverwalk
Two nights at the Westin, the wife got a terrific rate and we are dedicated to doing extremely touristy Chicago things; yesterday we took the architecture boat tour, had deep dish and walked Navy Pier (you can totally skip Navy Pier.)
On Sunday night we saw The Neo-Futurists.
Tried to engage the girl to join me, but we have had late nights and she begged off. Perhaps tomorrow.
Climate: sunny & cool
Mood: not bad
Love the organized chaos of an urban run on a designated path. People are walking to work, also running and walking (no wheels permitted) and everyone – by and large – stay to the right and passes on the left.
A city wakes on a weekday with traffic on the streets (above) and city workers cleaning the pavement, making repairs. There are also the boat horns, that is a nice touch. I see runners in downtown Cleveland, there are more and more of them, but nothing like the scale and density of a city like this.
Cities are about density. Utopia requires people.
