It was cold up there in Chicago but I did not let that slow me down from seeing the sights of this beautiful culturally diverse city. I did not want to travel too far so I tried to look for places that were close to my hotel that I was staying which was Affinia. It was a very ultra modern hotel which has been thru a major remodeling transformation. Very centrally located in the downtown area on the Northwestern University campus. Since I was next door to Lake Michigan I decided to check why this place was so popular. I forgot how cold Chicago was until I pose in this picture beside the lake. I was in shock at how people were leisurely strolling around the lake like is summertime! But I must say it was a beautiful sight to see! Since I was at the lake I decided to venture further out into the cold and walk to Navy Pier. This is where the famous Ferris Wheel I use to see in pictures along the docks of Chicago. I could not believe that the Ferris wheel was operating and that people were riding on it. Thank goodness it was not windy today!
After seeing this I had to go inside a warm environment and luck that I did because this month the Navy Pier has their cultural floral show. This was right on time since I was here as a Diversity Leader. It was interesting in seeing what flowers are being used throughout the world.
