Last week...

was fun. It was my first time in Chicago, and its a pleasure to visit this city. I hope to be there again some day. I stayed a day with an ol pal of mine from college. He is also an Amit (note how I'm referring to him as "an Amit", coz we are a breed apart. heh heh heh. He can be found here.) He was staying at a company apartment in downtown Chicago on Michigan Avenue. Its on the "Magnificent Mile".

Downtown Chicago is a beautiful beautiful place. I arrived in downtown Chicago late in the evening, with millions of lights twinkling in tall buildings. It was simply stunning; I had never quite seen a city like this one. We had dinner at a small cosy place, a Moroccan joint called Andalous.

Next morning (Morning? More like noon) , we went exploring around. Had breakfast at a Mexican joint. Clicked some photographs. Had coffee at Starbucks, another first for me. Checked out the breath taking architecture, skyscrapers kissing the wintry blue above. Stark and beautiful.

Caught a long flight back on Saturday evening to Bangalore, via Frankfurt and Mumbai. Whew. In a couple of days I'm leaving for Tel Aviv. Globe trotter, be I :o
