Sunday Brunch with Arun's Family


Marika made New Mexico-style burritos and Aarti brought makings for mimosas for our Sunday morning brunch in Chicago. After brunch, we walked to the Lincoln Park zoo and all around the area until we wore ourselves out and came back home to allow Marika to rest before her scheduled night shift that night.

Arun and I left Gil at home and went out to dinner at Davanti Enoteca near North Side on Hubbard with his family and their friends. Aarti did all the ordering for our group.

I got in 13,000 steps by the end of the day. It was sunny and in the 80's for most of the day.

Gil and I drove home the next day -- Labor Day. Stopped in at the Green Well for lunch as we did on our way TO Chicago two days before.

All in all, a wonderful weekend trip!

Chicago Art Institute and Terzo Piano


Having lunch with Gil and Marika on a gorgeous 70 degree afternoon in Chicago. We saw the Gauguin show at the Art Institute followed by lunch up on the Terzo Piano terrace.

The whole day was a delight. We went to Hamilton at 2 pm and then met Marika and Arun for dinner at the Willow Room. Walked there from their house but it poured down rain when we were planning to come home so we called an Uber.

An episode of Game of Thrones later, I retired to our guest room and slept the night away listening to Hamilton tunes playing over and over in my head!
