In order to file my au pair visa, I had to drive five long hours to the French consulate of Chicago. Considering I lived in Chicago for the past four years, it was also an excuse to visit some very beloved friends and family. And to enjoy some much-needed bonding time with little brother.
I had a hard time narrowing things down — I need your votes! Will it be photo one, two, three or four?
This is the view from my little brother’s apartment, isn’t he lucky?
This is my little brother. He’s a cutie.
This is the lion in front of the Art Institute of Chicago, notice the four-star Chicago flag in the background. Also adjacent building.
I found these funky skyscrapers on a walk back from Trader Joe’s. Weird, right?

Photo 4. I’m from Chicago and don’t ever recall seeing the building pictured to the right of the CNA Center. The architecture boat tour in Chicago is a great way to learn about the different styles of buildings in the city.
That’s my favorite photo too, Chicago’s architecture is so quirky that it’s fun to walk around. I’ll have to look into the boat tour though!
Got to be Photo four.. That skyscraper looks awesome!!
Thanks, Scot! That’s my favorite one as well.
I like #4 also. That undulating wave building is cool. But for the sake of your brother, let’s say #1 and #2 are the best.
Haha thanks Scott, I’m sure he’ll appreciate that!
I really like the Chicago pictures. Living in Milwaukee, Chicago has always just been a quick train or bus ride away…or drive for that matter. It’s always a joy to visit Chicago!
I’ve heard really good things about Milwaukee, I’ve been trying to make it there for so long! And yes, Chicago never disappoints :)
