In the telephono booth in Niles, Illinois

the fake Leaning tower

Day one is complete! We had sunny skies the whole journey today, almost got sunburned on my left arm while I was driving!! But Aaron took over the driving duties and took us through Chicago. Interesting city, very windy, lots of cars and people walking everywhere, and taxis honking left and right! Lots of big buildings too! We went up to the 99th floor of the Sears tower, which gave great views of the city and the lake. But we both agreed, we probably have no desire to go back to Chicago. Another highlight of the day was a side trip to Niles, Illinois to see a replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Our day ended about 9:00 central time at our hotel in Madison Wisconsin, where we grilled up some burgers on the george foreman! All in all, not a bad start to the trip!
