Kiss And Ride On The CTA
Hello from Chicago. I meant to make a quick post this morning from the hostel, but their internet terminals go down like plague victims, so it’s taken me a little while to find an internet cafe.
Chicago is good. Chicago is big. Very big. My usual strategy of ‘walk in one direction until you get where you want to go’ is proving kinda painful. The El goes everywhere except, seemingly, where I need to go. Anyway, I’ve been abusing my 3-day pass quite nicely, even though I’ve managed to get completely lost twice already. Nothing like realizing you’re in a foreign city where you know no one and have no idea where you are, especially late at night. Nothing like it at all.
Quickly – I’ve done the Sears Tower, Lincoln Park Zoo, Wicker Park, heading up to Wrigleyville now. Luna last night were terrific, and now I’m sad I’ll never see them again. Umm…. what else. My legs really hurt, but I’ve implied that already. Weather is beautiful, people are nice. Wish you were here, etc etc.
That’s all for now. American Music Club tonight. See y’all tomorrow.
