This is just some of the stuff I have seen while being here in Chicago. The first is the biggest trains I have ever seen. Not only are they big but they are double deckers.

The next picture is the most famous building and the highest in Chicago the Sears tower it is 108 storeys and is the fifth tallest freestanding structure in the world. I'm going up it on Wednesday. In the picture you can see at the top some bits that's Seem to jut out they are the glass panels that you can walk on if you dare.

This next picture is for my hubby Keith XXX Last nights food was a New York Stripe steak with a blue cheese crust, it was sooooooooooooo good.

This is just a snip of Chicago, I want to come back with my hubby he would love this,I hope you like:)

I'm in Chicago

Well we are finally here and by we I mean Emma and Lynda. I have to say I really don't enjoy the travelling bit it was such a long day, We arrive at the hotel at about 3 in the morning UK time nut 10pm lol time.

We all went straight to bed and I have never seen a bed so big I was lost in it :) but I was rudely awoken by the air con this went on until about 3am when I couldn't take any more and switched the bloody thing off.

This is a picture of the hotel I took this morning.
