I love to travel just about anywhere in the world …except Chicago. Maybe its the midwestern accents or possibly the lack of definition of exactly where the city stops or begins; It may also be the lack of people on the sidewalks or the abundance of cars on the highway but Chicago isn’t any fun. Yes, I know that Wrigley Field is a monument and there is a long history of music roots in Jazz and Blues but those facets of the city seem to be lost on the people who live there. Most Chicagoans – many of whom don’t actually live in the city – consider themselves culturally diversified but I find the opposite. As far as I can see the only redeeming qualities of the city are hot dogs with poppy seed buns and This American Life and Coach Ditka. Rant over.
