The Chicago Bean + deep-dish Pizza.

We took the bus down from Madison, Wisconsin this morning to spend the day wandering around Chicago.

We stopped at Union Station, dropped off our luggage in storage and then wandered the Magnificent Mile, the city, and across a few bridges. I love that the skyscrapers are scattered amongst the tall carved, older buildings, right up close to the sidewalks and the rivers.

We dropped into Lou Malnatis for my first deep dish pizza – I waited until Chicago to try it for the first time. Cheese underneath, sausage on top – a different way to try pizza, so filling, but delicious.

We checked out the Chicago ‘Bean’, which is actually called the Cloud Gate statue, but is known lovingly as the bean by all.

We wandered over to Navy Pier, wandering around all evening until it got dark. We looked over the city and the sharp shards of ice across the lake.
