Memorial Day Trip -Day 2

The next day we woke up after 7 and got ready, since this hotel had complimentary breakfast we had waffles and bread, juice and tea and filling our tummines we left for Chicago city at 9. Our first stop was at navy pier, we parked our car there and decided to explore the remaining city by walk/bus.

As we were walking across the city we clicked some snaps of the buildings.

First stop was the Millenium park, we clicked pictures near the bean and then went for a walk around the garden which had beautiful flowers.

Then we wanted to take the red/green trolley which we had done about 6 yrs back but this tiem everything was pretty expensive. We wanted to get to Willis Tower(sears Towers renamed) and were getting tired alkign in the hot sun, Since it was lunch time we stopped at a McDonald's and had lunch. From there we went to Willis Tower and there was a long line waiting outside. me and G waited outside while the others went and it took them nearly 3 hours to finish the whole tour what with the long waiting lines.

From there we caught the city transit and went to the Shedd Aquarium. It was nearly 5 when we reached there and since the Aquarium would close at 6 we took just the General Pass and visited. There were lots of fishes and other animals to see .

Since it was getting late G asked us to wait there while he went to navy Pier ang got the car. From there he went to Devon Street which is like the Asian place in Chicago and we got to see lots of Indian/Pakistani shops.
We had dinner at a place which was not so great and then reached our hotel by 10:30 and went off to bed.
