It’s been a whirlwind three days in Chicago, and Sharon and I covered a lot of ground (in steamy heat, I might add - the heat/humidity index today was 102degrees, and it felt like breathing through wet blankets)

The “main event” was a John Singer Sargent exhibit at the Chicago Institute of Art - zowie!

There was a George Jensen silver show 👏 in the next room, which made us drool.

We also got to a farmers market, an art festival on Glen Ellyn lake, and I tried a Chicago pizza and hot dog (loaded, it’s perfection).

Now sitting in ORD, waiting to board Norwegian Premiere Class for London.

I’ll shout when I’m on the other side of the pond!

Chicago looks Cool 😎
I know it was hot and muggy but the sights were amazing! Loved the art and OMG the pizza looked delish! I will try and convey how I sent this comment to Rosie via FB 😊

Got your 2nd entry and photos so I guess I signed up correctly. Loved the art and wonder if your hot dog tastes as good as a Costco polish dog? Smooth flight and go night night.

Hot digs
Don’t know what the polish one tastes like, so you’ll have to introduce me..😉 The Chicago dog had snap, was high quality and the condiments tasted fresh and healthy.

A Polish dog awaits you when you get home. If you remember after 3 months of fun....
