After landing in Chicago and heading out of the airport to wait for an Uber, I realized why they call it The Windy City. The rain came down hard, and the wind shot me with one big gust. If this wasn’t a fitting welcome, then I don’t know what is.
As it’s my first time in Chicago, I’m filled with mixed emotions about being in a big city and curious about how it feels and looks. Helping put me at ease and calm those new-to-me city nerves is the fact that I’m here to experience two sister properties in Chicago’s popular neighborhoods.
