More photos of Thanksgiving in the States (Or: I’m still cold)

Here are some more photos from the Thanksgiving vacation to Chicago and Indy, randomly chosen. 

Right next to our hotel was a Gino’s East. Home of Chicago’s famous deep dish pizza. Seriously, it looks more like a pie than a pizza. They also allow (and encourage) writing on any piece of wall you can reach. Chairs too. Basically everything but the tables. 

More graffiti

Another place we visited was Andersonville. Being a public transportation nerd, I really wanted to visit Transit Tees, which has both Chicago souvenirs for the L (transit system) as well as general souvenirs for the city and surrounding area. I ended up getting a card game and a puzzle. There was also a comic book store, at the end of an alleyway…

Marco and I wondered why there was no sign that said “Crime Alley”. That’s a Batman joke…
Millenium Park looking rather festive, with a building illuminated in purple behind.

We also visited a store called “It’s Sugar!” at the Navy Pier. Oh. My. God. It lives up its name…

Cereal sized boxes of candy. I especially love Dingle Bearies, which is actually chocolate covered gummy bears.

Closer to the Ferris wheel, you have an indoor rainforest of sorts. Nice and warm in the middle of winter, with lots of fun fountains spouting water every which way (including archways over paths).

Nice and warm, nice and warm….
Heading over to Indianapolis, here is a collection of candy canes. I almost regret not getting the Oreo candy canes…
And finally, a peaceful photo of a doll left on a chair, at my dad’s church (I got the grand tour).

One thought on “More photos of Thanksgiving in the States (Or: I’m still cold)

  1. They are NOT pizzas. Delicious quiches, pies or whatever. But NOT pizza πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    And Alleycat Comics was great. Friendly people, good choice including great trade paperbacks πŸ™‚
