September 14, 2012 - Chicago, Illinois, United States

When we got into Chicago we were picked up by a coach and taken on a 3 hour tour of the city which was very good. Again the weather is beautiful. There are some beautiful buildings and a lovely waterfront which overlooks Lake Michigan. We were dropped off at our hotel where the room was huge with a massive shower and beautiful bathroom. We were both shatered from the night before so we didnt rush around. We popped out and I needed to pick up some things from Walgreeens. We then walked and found somewhere close by for lunch. We all met up at 17:00 to make our way to the river for a boat trip. We were taken along the Chicago River where thr guide paointed out different buildings and landmarks and then out on to Lake Michigan which gave us an amazing view of Chicago with the sunset behind the buidings. After we returned we finally found somwhere to eat which didnt have too much of a queue. It was a lovely Italian although we did wait for ages for our main which had obviously been forgotte. We were stuffed with very good food and asked for the bill which the waitress bought along with a HUGE piece of complimentary tiramasu because we had been kept waiting!! It was devine, but couldnt really do it justice because we were stuffed. We got back to our room and literally fell into bed shattered.
