In and around Chicago – In pictures

Sometime in the summers of 2013 I had was in Chicago for work. Being the quick and busy trip that it was, I was not at the luxury of seeing and exploring places on this trip. However, I managed to explore whatever little I could, sharing some photos from the same trip here.

I was put-up in the suburbs and hence, was lucky to be saved from the cacophony of the city.

This being my first trip to the US, there were many things that were new to me but one of the most significant of all was, the time when the sun used to go down. Sunset happened pretty late my Indian standards!

If my memory is not failing me here, the photo below was taken at about 8.30 – 9 PM.

One of the good things about living in the suburbs and not in the heart of the city was, greenery was always just round the corner.

Don’t believe me? See for yourself!

  1. Nice pics Rajiv. I had a similar condition as yours in Chicago about 10 years back with no time to explore the place.
