Operation: LOH (day 2 - daytime)

Chicago Free Trolley
Cousins - Rachel, Jonathan, Michelle, Charlene

Downtown Chicago - they don't make 'em like this in SF.

Architecture Boat Tour.

Art Deco - Vertical lines to accentuate height. Unlike Post Modern which is very colorful and calls attention to itself (the tour guide repeated these two lines ad nasuem).

Uncle Charles (da-buo-buo), Grandma (ah-niang), Uncle David (er-buo-buo) , Aunt Emily (ni-ma)

Dad: "Haha, look at (Charles). That hat makes him look like a tourist!" Way to go Dad.
Aunt Judie (er-niang-niang)

So after the boat tour, we docked and let loose in the city. My sister, Uncle Tom, and I splintered off for lunch, split up and wandered, and met back at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art where we checked out a Robert Flavin exhibit. All of his installations were of colored fluorescent lights and using them to create different relationships within the light itself and the environment. It was pretty cool to see. All of his notes were pretty boring however =P Afterwards, we WALKED all the way back to where we parked. All in all, i think it was like 20 blocks. We were all so tired (except for Uncle Tom who pulled out an energy bar and gatorade towards the end of our walk and began to briskly walk by us. My brother found a vendor selling Toasted Almond good humor bars which are quite rare nowadays. Finally back at the parking lot, off to Chinatown.
