    I've never been to Chicago. It looks like a great city. Always has.

    I was in Chicago a couple of years ago but I didn't explore the city itself enough. Must remedy that the next time I go.

    Once they get the renovations done at Wrigley, I'll be back!

    Chicago is one of my favorite places. I must go more often.

    I miss Chicago. :(

    Tomorrow I'll be in Milwaukee, which is like a smaller, cleaner version of Chicago.

    Beautiful!

    It has been well over 21 years since I visited Chicago.

    ^ I actually kind of like O'Hare. Whenever I have a layover there, I make it a point to travel back and forth within that underground tunnel with the cool neon sculpture thingy.

    I remember at some point I was at an airport in the north mid of the US and I had to go from one terminal to another and there was those moving sidewalks where everyone just stands there with their luggage and it creeps along and I was like NO WAY am I gonna do that I will just walk. 5 miles later.. and you couldn't even get on the sidewalks once you started walking because there were barriers along them.

    :lol:

    Haha yeah teacake, sometimes they can be really long! I always get on them and walk. I'm still walking, just getting there faster.

    And thanks guys! I fell in love with the city several years ago and I'm so glad to be back. Here's another pic I took (already posted on FB) from the Sears Tower. It was my first time up there and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I took the photo in the direction of where I live, though there's no way you could see it from here.

    If I ever go there I will expect a full tour and the best ketchup-free hotdogs!

    I don't like ketchup on my hot dogs, either. For me it's chunky chili, onions and mustard. Maybe a drop of something hot or spicy. But ketchup? Save it for the burgers and fries.

    But it's a Chicago thing not to put it on hot dogs isn't it? I was trying to be with it so Kestra takes me on a tour.

    And yeah, I haven't had any in the house for years.

    Correct. Mustard only.

    I've never had Chicago hot dogs, just Chicago-style pizza. But if they don't include any ketchup whatsoever then I like the things already.

    I mean, it's a city. And I recall it being very clean.

    It is in Wisconsin, though, so that's kind of annoying.

    I haven't actually been in a real city in probably 3 years.
