Spent another night in Chicago. Successfully attended the Chicago Blues fest, this time. The rain held back. A Willie Dixon tribute band played a lot of old Dixon's tunes. It is amazing how many have been covered by other bands. Also saw some up and coming blues acts. Went to the Polish Museum of America. Very interesting as I am part Polish and traveled to Poland a couple years ago.Had dinner at a neighborhood bar - Rockwell - in Ravenswood Manor.
Had a great time with my cousin Ann. Tomorrow at 10:00 pm we leave for Finland.
My wife and I love to travel via bike touring. We have traveled several times in our native Wisconsin. We have also traveled to Europe, bike touring several times. These blogs are some of our travels.... full info
Flying HussarWW II war relief poster for Poland, featuring the Flying Hussar. The hussar were elite riding soldiers in Poland, that wore feathered wing struts. These would make an unusual whirring sound as the Hassar galloped towards the enemy, with 20 foot lance and draped in a leopard skin. This would frighten the enemy and their horses.
