Went to the Chicago History Museum and saw this creative display with a costume from the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Love the paper hair!!

I used to live in Chicago over 35 years ago. Just visited and the city looks amazing. Chicago has amazing architecture and there are so many cool things to see. I was eager to see Millenium Park. They have fountains where they project photos of native Chicagoans and they "spray" water on people! Whimsical and clever and the kids love them, particularly at this time of year.
Public art that is interactive is the best!!
We saw "the bean" as locals call it. Amazing from every angle, and it's great watching people interact with it.
Love this selfie!!
Then we went across the street to the Chicago Cultural center. Totally amazing building beautifully preserved with intricate, gorgeous inlaid mosaics everywhere.
How about this table at a restaurant we passed by?
Then we walked past the Tribune building and embedded in the outer walls are relics from all over the world. Fascinating!!! Too many to take pictures of, but there is a piece of a moon rock on the building.
Here's a link to a story about it!!
I just adore this city, the people are nice and it looks fantastic. There is a lot of pride and those stewarding this town are doing it well.
