We came to Chicago to visit a close friend of Norbert's.
Another best friend of his, living in Copenhagen, was there as well (his trip was a surprise to me...I found this out the moment I saw his incredibly tall frame when we walked out of the airport.
I let out a very loud laugh as soon as I saw him. It was a wonderful surprise :)
The weekend played out into a whirlwind of one great conversation after another. Throw in some amazing food and sight-seeing and that nearly sums up our trip.
The following images are of the flora and fauna that held me completely mesmerized in the heart of Chicago.
There will be more tomorrow....
