Chicago tips part II

- Fruit and salads- Fresh fruit and veg are much better than in the UK. In summer I would say it is impossible to sample the traditional pancakes, french toast, waffles, etc - temperatures are around 30 degrees and you just don't feel like stodge
- Teas - again better than in the UK. Hard to hear I know.
- Mexican food
- Brush up on your Spanish, almost as much spoken as English.
- The architectural boat tour

- The Signature Lounge on the 96th floor of the Herbie Hancock building, fantastic view of Chicago for the price of a coffee. No dress codes or uncertain entry like in the UK.

- The Millennium park with the Anish Kapoor "bean" 
and the Art Institute of Chicago
My favourite pieces in the Art Institute of Chicago

- The Garden Cafe of the Art Institute of Chicago, possibly one of the best places to be in the world on a hot summer day.
