Even if you have no plans of entering the Planetarium, go to Adlers when you are in Chicago! It was so fun to see the city from that angle. There was plenty of (paid) street parking the times I went there.
My kid absolutely refused to believe that Lake Michigan is a lake. Back in Denmark, we can look across the ocean to Sweden, so how can this endless span of water be a lake??
I guess I like contrasts. In the summer I post Christmas lights and in the dark of winter (and it is indeed dark and dreary where I am) I post green trees.
The Adler Planetarium happens to lie on the banks of Lake Michigan, a beautiful space.
My first visit there was just to check out the parking facilities. Second time I brought my camera.
As a teenager I visited London often. What impressed me the most (apart from the Topshop under Oxford Circus with their own radio station and clothes we would not see in Denmark for another year) was the Planetarium. So, of course, I had to visit the one in Chicago.
Once I lived in Chicago for 6 months. That was back when Corona was a beer and face masks were worn by surgeons in hospitals, aka last year.
I miss Chicago and I wasn’t half-finished taking pictures. Thankfully I did take a lot and there are still plenty to edit and share.
Merry Christmas everyone – wherever you are and whatever time of the year it is when you read this.
Felling chilly today so wanted to remind myself of the comfy warm feeling of twinkle lights.
Another view of the color-changing lights.
