Sorry I did not give a notice about my leave, but I was hoping I could post something while away.
Unfortunately I was too busy, but the trip did not take too long and there fore I am back !
I had to take a nursing exam and even though it was really hard, I am hopeful I did good. We shall see in 6 to 10 weeks.
Anyhow, we stayed at the Double Tree Hotel, which is near the Magnificent Mile and by the Michigan Lake. Just amazing, considering the height and size of those buildings.
Here's the Michigan Lake shore.
It's a beautiful city, but I could not live there. It's a bit suffocating for me.
I did get to go to Trader Joe's (Yea !!) and got some wild rice (has a black color) which I cannot wait to cook.
Also, I had my very first piece of original deep dish Chicago Style pizza at Gino's !!!
I will share a few pictures with you, so you can get an idea of how nice everything was.
Glad to be back !

Heavy traffic !
Here is me holding the morning paper. We also went to the Hard Rock Cafe and we got matching clothes. It was cold in Chicago !
