Chicago-style pizza from Pizzaria Uno. (The cornmeal crust is the best!)
Deep dish sundae also from Pizzaria Uno.
Taking the Chicago Architecture Boat Tour...and drinking a bottle of champagne.
Dinner and drinks with Sheela and Joey!
Rolling down the hill near the Field Museum.
Chicago-style hot dog...mmm!
Garrett's popcorn - caramel mixed with cheese.
Albert and I went to Chicago for 4 days to visit Joey and Sheela. (Joey and I lived together for almost five years. And Sheela will be graduating soon and got a position in Amsterdam!) This is my second time to Chicago in the adult phase of my life. Even though it's my birthplace, I did way more touristy things this time - and it was fun!
Joey and Sheela - Thanks for showing us around and taking care of us. We had a blast!

Yay! Ate tons of food and showed them all the highlights of Santa Cruz, including a hike through UCSC (no banana slugs, sadly), bike ride along West Cliff, and riding the Giant Dipper twice at the Boardwalk. Whee!

I'm so glad I got to pick berries this summer before the season ended - and strawberries no less! My favorite! Albert and I picked only enough to eat and to make a strawberry tart. It's hard to stop picking once you're out there because you'll always see a big, bright red one that is just calling out to you.
