The main reason we came to Chicago, besides the promise of deep dish pizza, was the lure of the big buildings.
Here the architecture, history and art of Chicago are all wrapped up in one. And to be here, to look up and see different styles and different eras all blended together and sitting next to each on Michigan or Wacker or Wabash is something to behold.
Really, really behold.
Two nights ago we visited Willis Tower (formerly Sears) and looked down on some of the amazing buildings in the world. This morning we participated in a river tour organised by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, and looked up.
It's hard not to feel small when in the presence of giants.
