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.


The Tribune Tower


View of the Magnificent Mile from the Hancock Tower


View of Lake Michigan


Never had coffee served like this

The Crown Fountain in Millennium Park

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.
