    Ä rägnerische Tag …

    September 27, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Zum Glück hei mir ä so schönä erschte sunnige Tag in Chicago dörfe erläbä.

    Mir hei zwar gwüsst, dass es hüt chli sött Rägä gä, aber nid i däm Usmass u fasch dr ganz Tag.
    Vor em z'Morgä hei mir no Action vor em Hotel kah … pefekti Ussicht für üs. Was genau isch passiert wüsse mir nid, aber äs isch ä Velofahrer uf dr Chrüzig glägä u äs isch grad z'ganze Ufgebot cho. Öb är isch agfahre worde oder no eine im Helm hett kah? Das wüsse mir nid. Aber spannend gsi zum beobachte.

    När si mir i üses z'Morgä-Kafi u hei üsi Mäge mit ere feine Avocado-Egg-Bowle gfüllt u si när los marschiert für chli ga z'shoppe. Dr Rägä hett üs scho grad chli ä Strich dür d'Rächnig gmacht. Zum Glück gits ou hie ä H&M mit Billig-Schirme u Rägämänteli …

    Dr Nami hei mir när im Hotel verbracht.

    Ah, u mir hei ja no gäng kei Bestätigung vo üsere Outovermietig kah. Deshalb hei mir dänkt, gö mir grad diräkt verbii, de wüsse mir Bscheid 🤪. Dr Alain, Babuche u Len si de när mit em Taxi (äs hett grad wieder wie us Chüble gläärt) zur Hertz Outo Vermieteg g'fahre … leider scho zue. Tja, de luege mir haut glich morn. Ungerdessä hett sich z'Wätter beruhigt u mir si zrugg marschiert (so si mir chli zu Bewegig cho).
    Nina und Yannick si ungerdessä im Hotel-Fitness-Part ga uspowere.

    z'Nacht hei mir im Lieblingsresti vom Yannick gno … mmmmmhhhhhh lecker, würklech mega fein die Wings …

    Last day USA

    April 20, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 1 °C

    Last night we got a little more dressed up and went to see the musical Hamilton. It was really good with great singing and storytelling and clearly the audience loved it very much.
    This morning we packed and then had breakfast at Meli cafe restaurant which was just okay. We had a walk and eventually checked out of the hotel and then went to the Chicago Art Institute. This was totally amazing, it was huge and had so many pieces of art work Including modern Art and impressionist and American and much more. I think we need a couple of more visits to see it all. I also went to see the miniature exhibition that we saw in 1980 👍😮. Back to the Hotel and we are going to leave shortly for the airport.

    At the huge OHare airport we checked in very early and then had a relaxed and yummy meal at a proper italian restaurant. At least our last American meal is a good one. Now waiting, waiting, waiting😉
    Finally our American Airlines plane has left for LA.
    At LA it’s a great airport but I think we are delayed😮

  • Nice to meet you Chicago!

    April 15, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 1 °C

    The rain has stopped! Perfect time for a walk through downtown Chicago and do some primary camera testing. I soon find out that i my freshly bought lens takes ultrasharp pictures, but if you want to take pictures of buildings, the stuff that fits on your picture is pretty limited. Damn you fixed lens! Here are some first images i took during the day... maybe tonight if the weather allows, will try some evening pictures (exciting right!)

    See ya later alligator!

    On our own in Chicago CBD!

    April 18, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 1 °C

    Last morning - said goodbye to Dennis :( and Marcie drove us once more downtown to our hotel the Congress Plaza on Michigan Street. She then drove us up to the top of this street and we walked down. Had a good coffee and almond croissant and then started walking down State Street. Went into the Holy Name Cathedral - beautiful but mass was in progress. We also went into H&M and Macey's one more time. Craig bought some hankies and I bought a pair of black pants and some silver earrings. We also had a look at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel - such a gorgeous lobby area and the famous Peacock doors. Lunch was healthy at freshii and then continued the walk - cold but okay - until we got to our hotel to check in. It does seem like an old, but lovely hotel. Nice to rest in our 'large' room. This evening we walked up in the rain to a nice Italian restaurant called Vivere on Monroe Street. We enjoyed the chicken and especially the Latte di Lecce Cheesecake. Walking home was in the snow/rain!!Read more
