Postcards from Chicago

Here are some photographs salvaged from one half of the trip. The best views were on the architecture cruise, but getting those online is a subsequent project.

Hooray for pictures! Had I not read the caption, I would have thought that it was wine, and not coffee in that glass. :)

@Vi: Precisely why I thought it was interesting enough to be posted :-)

Fine snaps, these! I'd been to Chicago 5 years back, in July - perhaps a bad time coz twas warm and humid. Also, I missed out on the millennium park/cloud gate. The snaps help :-)

@Niranjan: Glad you liked the pictures. I think I hit the best weather possible in my trip so that certainly helped.
