Just got home from there for work - the Chicago Marathon is tomorrow. 45000 of them signed up (same size as my hometown and 4000 more than Fenway Park holds, and I'm pretty much sure I met most of them today and yesterday). But anyway it's not just that, but every time I go there I get all caught up in the excitement of the city. So much going on. I love the architecture, I love how nice the people are, I love the history, I love how much stuff is going on for free and for pay, I love the lake and the use of the waterfront, I love that it's such a cool sports and music and restaurant and bar city, (even the cabbies are cool!) and I love the renaissance it's going through and how much it's changed for the better in the last 4 years. 'Nuff love?
I think it's my favorite city in the U.S. now. Gotta check it out in the winter sometime to see how much worse it is than Boston. Than I can decide my favorite city. But anyway, I just wanna say how much I love that fine old place.
