Great set of photos. Why so many people about or is it just another day in downtown Chicago?

As a former Chicagoan, I go back once or twice a year, and I find myself doing all the same tourist things you did. It never grows old for me.

Great pics. A little blurry on some of them, but otherwise pretty good! A typical tourist experience in those photos. Do you have family here, how come you visit relatively often?
