On July 23-24, 2011, Janet and I took a train trip to Chicago and back.  Some of the photos below may be miscategorized or out of order, because the photos were taken by three different cameras and weren't sorted until December (when we don't remember exactly what we did).

We took the train to Chicago.  Janet and I spent most of the time reading or playing games on my Kindle.  The blurry picture below is probably another train speeding by in the opposite direction.

We visited the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower).  They have installed plexiglass outcroppings.  I didn't have the guts to step out in one, but Janet did.

Two of the photos were professionally produced by the folks at the Willis Tower.  The first one below is Janet out in one of the outcroppings, and the second one was "green-screened" (the photo was actually taken in the lobby waiting to ascend into the tower).

These are photos we took while walking around Chicago.

Chicago has a very cool statue of Marilyn Monroe.  We found that by accident while walking around.

We took a boat tour.

We visited Chinatown and had dinner.

We rode the L-train, which was pretty cool.

We visited Navy Pier and the ferris wheel.  The photo below was sold to us by the folks at Navy Pier.

Somewhere in our travels, we also found a Rainforest Cafe.  But I don't remember where or when.

I did make a YouTube video of the photos and movies I have.  In case the YouTube video is not available, there is a low-resolution Windows Media Player video here.

Janet's dad (Gene) has a 1972 Grand Prix for sale.  Below are photos of the exterior.
