Approaching Chicago

(Chicago Skyline from the Orange Line uploaded by brownpau.)

This is my second time in Chicago, and yesterday was my first time to use the El all on my own. Lovely city, but kind of vertical, which I’m not used to anymore. I suppose the verticalness is accentuated by having the loop go through downtown. Right now I’m in the very picturesque Bryn Mawr historic district, just a couple of blocks from the lakeside.
