A Long Weekend Back In Chicago

A Long Weekend Back In Chicago

Earlier this month, Sonia and I went back to Chicago for a long weekend. It was the first time we’ve visited since we moved almost two years ago. Needless to say it was a bit surreal to be back. Our first stop was the lake of course, for an early morning swim. We were in town for friends’ wedding, but we tacked on an extra day on either side to visit with friends. It was pretty much a non stop weekend, so I barely took any pictures. Here are a few favorites from the weekend.

Marian  and I went to the  Musuem of Contemporary Art , and loved this  Assaf Evron  show. (See also my  studio visit with Marian Runk )

I met my friend Margaret at the River Walk downtown. When I left Chicago, it was only partly open, but they’ve since done a ton of work on it, and on lots of other buildings downtown. It was a whole lot flashier. Even though I’m sure it was an insanely expensive project, it is a really nice addition to downtown, and I wish it had been around when I lived there!

We took almost no photos on this trip, but did snap this selfie on the bus to the wedding.
