Our fast-paced thirty-sixth day was in Chicago, IL. Upon our arrival, the Chicago skyline welcomed us with open arms. The large city had many more people than we have been seeing in the smaller countryside towns. The downtown area was full of huge skyscrapers that you can see as you approach the city. Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower) is a 110 story building at 1,729 feet to the tip, Willis Tower is not only one of the tallest buildings in the world, the iconic structure is also almost impossible to miss within Chicago’s skyline. The two iconic antennas look like horns from afar. Downtown Chicago is home to more than 100 sculptures, mosaics, and paintings. There are many murals depicting civil rights leaders and other well-known Chicago-born icons. We also saw a Battery Electric bus that has Zero emissions. This is amazing to see that not only personal vehicles, but also large passenger vehicles can now be fully electric. They can also charge at electrify America stations. The railway system is also very important to Chicago and is one of the backbones to the city’s transportation. We also passed by an interesting display of colorful legs that donned a variety styles reflecting the city’s diverse tastes. Then we made our way to the beaches of lake Michigan, which is a hotspot during the summer for locals to enjoy activities like yoga. The lake brings a nice sense of harmony to the city as well. The busy day subsided and we continued our trek through Illinois.
