Memories of Chi-town
The amazing honey custard French toast with chamomile creme anglaise, candied lemon and apple blossoms at Lula Cafe in the Logan Square section of Chicago. Touring Hyde Park, including Obama's house and the faux gothic U. of C. campus. Catching up with old college friends over soul food. Happening upon a random party. Finally seeing Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte in person - and American Gothic, too. Potbelly sandwiches and Vienna Beef hot dogs. The skyline from Museum Campus. The view from the John Hancock Tower. Dripping scoops of ice cream on a warm summer evening in "downtown" Clarendon Hills.
