While I wait for Cara to get home from work, I’m schlepping around Roscoe Village. Chicago traffic was not kind to me on my way in, but now that I’m here, I remember why I love this city.
It’s full of walking neighborhoods! You can walk from home to get groceries, to go to church, to get a beer, to grab coffee, to see a show…the world is within walking distance of your doorstep! Assuming you choose your doorstep well 🙂
Are you going too far to walk, but don’t want to brave the traffic and pay for parking? I don’t blame you. Like I said, Chicago (and northeastern IN) wasn’t kind to me in the traffic realm today. Bad, Chicago. Bad. I digress.
As a result of this conundrum (and for other environmental and health related reasons), so many people bike! It’s great. It would take me a minute to work up to their level of bravery, as they weave in and out of moving traffic. But I could get there. I could!
Time to go get Amy! Yay! Then we’re off Iowa-ward to stay at a friend from high school’s house. *thrilled*
Up next: Iowa and South Dakota
