Being in the transportation sector, I couldn't very well leave Chicago without giving Derek thoroughly using the whole of the CTA, and its signature element the L. Truth be told we were mostly on the buses and subway of the city, rather than the raised L loop track. We were here for only the week and unfortunately facing extensive track work and repairs, as so many aging infrastructure must do. Dek enjoyed himself but then conked out as we finished out tour and headed out to the airport (on the L of course!)
P.S. Sorry for this barrage of posts for events months overdue, finally getting organized for the end of summer here so you'll see what we've been up to in rapid succession though it happened much slower in real life. Thanks for your patience!
