As you already know I was in Chicago for a work related training over the Memorial Day weekend. I arrived on Thursday (a day earlier than my training) and left on Monday (the day after the training) so I would have plenty of time for hanging out and sightseeing. My visit was close to the end of Tulip Days on the Magnificent Mile but I was able to see plenty of vibrant tulips in bloom.

On my first day in the city, I decided to splurge on a 4th row ticket to see Wicked at the Oriental Theater. I LOVE live shows, with the amazing stage setups, costumes, live music and fabulous old theaters.

I wish I could show you pictures from inside the Oriental lobby, but none came out very good. And inside the actual theater there was a picture nazi/usher forbidding the theater-goers from taking any pictures. Anyhow, the show was awesome and afterward, I found a nice lady to take a picture of me to commemorate the experience.

Come back tomorrow, when I’ll share more from my Chicago trip!
