Attracted by the bright colors, I also walked through the Boeing Galleries and saw an exhibit by Jun Kaneko titled "Legends, Myths and Truths." I had seen his "Dango" pieces before, but the standing bear type creatures (apparently they're supposed to be a badger or raccoon type animal) called Tanuki were new to me:
|Kinda creepy, especially when walking alone|
I really liked the vibe Chicago had and I plan to visit again to really spend time seeing its attractions and eating its highly rated food.
The day after I flew back from Chicago, I hopped in a car and went up to Clearlake, CA for a long July 4th weekend.
I water skied for the first time in 9 years, went swimming, got a tan, saw fireworks, pigged out, and just generally relaxed. Not too shabby of a way to spend a few days.
Have you been anywhere new lately?
