We will be staying in Chicago for a few days prior to flying Helsinki on June 15 2015.

We drove uneventfully to Chicago, except for summer slowing, crawling, stopping summer construction delays as we made our way down the Tollway.

We (Pam and I) will be staying with my cousin Ann in Ravenswood Manor neighborhood in Chicago. It is near the Chicago river. It is surprisingly pretty, cleaned up and with several parks. We made an attempt to go to the Chicago Blues fest, but rain altered these plans. Walked around downtown, near the Art Institute - whose lions, whom guard the entrance to the Institute, had Chicago Black Hawk helmets on. The Black Hawks are currently battling Tampa Bay for the Stanley cup. There is a interesting shiny silver horse with a replica of the sculptor riding it, in it's adjacent garden.
