Just blew in from the Windy City

The sandwiches here in Chicago are incredible. Show me the pickle, I say.

We happened to be here for Open House Chicago 2011, and it has been a real treat. Man, that Santa Fe building is the bomb. This is totally open plan - no windows between the floors and a big skylight roof above and below. It was built by the architect of Chicago as a building for architects, and almost 100 years later architect firms are still here.

Lucky buggers. Would kill to work here everyday.

Also - Lake Michigan is monstrous but also very beautiful. I wake up to this view every morning.


  1. What? You're in the US and we didn't even know you were going? One minute you were at your brother's wedding and the next you are international jet-settters! Ack! It all looks SUPERB! Have a wonderful time!

  2. I'm with lara - so confused but it looks great.

  3. Glad you've had a chance to get away. Hope you have a fantastic time!


  4. Love it Michelle. Pickles! Ridiculous sandwhich installations! Architecture! Sounds like a grand time. And is that ham AND bacon on your sandwhich? My kind of place.


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments, but if you're anonymous please tell me who you are.
