Remembering Chicago's Charm

While reading the social media feeds, the memory of Obama’s Lego figure at Legoland Discovery Center in Illinois, came to mind. I realized I have never posted about this trip that I did years ago, which I think is one of the best cities if you are into modern architecture.

Have a look at some of the photos from that trip. They are meant to give you a peek into the things you can do and see. High on the list are: Sky Deck and the River Tour.

Besides Obama, there was also Batman and Dr. Indiana Jones

Besides Obama, there was also Batman and Dr. Indiana Jones. Hopefully, they are still there. But it’s Legoland so it is generally a good idea to go and see.
