I do love Chicago.

But I don’t love walking with a cane, in Chicago.

So I left home this morning and walked to the CWE Metrolink station.  That was a mistake.

I saw worn out by the time I got to the train.  At the airport, I asked for a wheelchair assist in Chicago, which saved me a great deal of walking at Midway.

Here in Chicago, I’m taking public transit everywhere. This afternoon’s visit was the to the Newberry Library to see their exhibits and do a bit of book shopping.

Now, at 4.15 p.m., I am at my hotel on Printer’s Row just south of Congress Parkway, and resting until time for dinner with a friend.

Chicago is filled with characters.  The stories I could tell, just from the last three hours…..
