Is “Girl from Ipanema” playing?

20111219-121052.jpgI’ve been to Chicago a couple of times but this time is special. I finally paid my respects to one of the greatest movies ever (if the picture isn’t enough, think Cook County Assessors Office and elevators playing “Girl from Ipanema”) and my first trip on CTA also known as Chicago Transit Authority, the name of a once-great band before going totally commercial and shortening the name to Chicago.

No cycling this trip although I certainly could have; the weather’s beautiful here. Blue skies, mid-40s. You could really be fooled about Midwest winters on a day like this.
