Well my little group of 7 arrived in the US safe and sound. Had a great trip over on QANTAS, staff and food both teriffic, so if anybody from QANTAS reads this l am here for 3 weeks, would love an upgrade on the way home and l'll rave about your airline even more.
I had no idea what Chicago was like, only had 2 night and one full day there, but thoroughly enjoyed what l saw. Did the mandatory Hop on Hop Off Bus that gave us an overview of the city. Then went on an Architectural River Cruise. The guides on both the bus and the cruise were excellent, they know their stuff and were very informative and entertaining. Must say though, the rocking of the boat had me dozing off a couple of times.
Headed down to Bubba Gump's Restaurant at Navy Pier ..... Clam Chowder and Shrimp for me, the Chowder was delicious! But what was even nicer was the Margarita. Ray they gave me the Margarita glasses which was lovely, as l have been known to steal special things like that in the past!
