Still On the Road
In the continued spirit of travel Americana, I passed the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile on the road on my way to Chicago. What a pop culture icon! I knew it was going to be a great trip. I grew up in the burbs outside the city and taught school on the west side for a couple of years. I thought I had visited all the regular tourist sites, but I was wrong. My friend had three picks: lunch at the outdoor café at the Art Institute, a visit to Jane Addams’ Hull House, and an evening on Navy Pier. All good choices. And we were on the pier’s ferris wheel just as the Wednesday night fireworks started. And now, I’m off to Boston for a long weekend of meetings.
