Arriving by road we first saw the Sears Tower from about 20 miles or so. Ages later we were under it and making good progress in rush hour to the hotel.
Arriving the check-in was quick and I was soon in a very palatial single room! Two queen beds, view over the front of the hotel; and a clear view of my old school friend\’s car gently emitting steam as it boiled over just before we arrived. Thanks Heavens he has a few days to get the AAA to sort it out.
We\’re back in a big (3rd in US) busy city, and a 1.8 mile stroll to and from the venue. After a day in the car I\’m looking forward to it, but maybe tomorrow we\’ll take the bus.
Sears and Hancock towers beckon, and there\’s load of city walking to do tomorrow. Must look out for a cheap camera lens, and a book on the political development of the USA (when and how states were created and joined the Union)
