Carlton

Chicago

Recommended Posts

Hello from Canada:

 

I do still poke my head around the forum from time to time. Justed wanted to say I flew into Chicago last weekend. It was the first major USA city I've visited .... and wow! I feel quite bad for the many unfortunate folks I saw on the street but for those with the means to take advantage of the many things to do in that beautiful city, it is a wonderful place to visit.

 

I walked 14km on Friday, 13km on Saturday then ran the Chicago marathon on Sunday. What an event! 45,000 runners and a reported 1,000,000 spectators lining the streets. I don't know how to put that in perspective being from Halifax, the largest city in Atlantic Canada which has a population of about 300,000. Our entire Province has just under 1,000,000 people.

 

Needless to say, other than running through the streets of all the main Chicago neighborhoods, I didn't see much in just one weekend. Guess I'll have to go back :)
