Wallet Card in Chicago

I rarely have to travel for my job, but every couple of years they send me somewhere. Earlier this week I was in Chicago for three days. (I was supposed to have posts automatically popping up, but for some reason the "schedule post" thing didn't work.) It was my first time in Chicago and I was really impressed. Lots of nice architecture (they seem to do a better job preserving their older buildings than New York does), and a lot less pedestrian and street traffic than NY.

Every time a local asked me where I was from and I said New York, they looked annoyed until I told them "It's OK, I'm a Yankee fan". A rare chance to actually not be hated for being one!

Unfortunately I spent most of my time in conference rooms and long dinners, so I didn't have a chance to fully explore as much as I wanted. Still, I'll have a couple of posts of quirky things I managed to find in my brief stay.
