A friend and I zipped over to Chicago for a couple of days. We took the train out of Lapeer, Michigan at 7 am on Monday. Arrived in Chicago around noon.
Our aim was to see the Vivian Maier photography exhibit, which is only there at the cultural center until April 3. We did see the exhibit. It was excellent and fascinating. Anyone who hasn’t read about her, check out this link http://vivianmaier.blogspot.com/
We also ran over to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Zoos make me a bit sad, but I was happy to see signs indicating that the zoo is attempting to only keep animals unable to live in the wild, and animals in captive breeding programs due to threat of extinction in the wild. We still have so far to go!
This tiger wanted to play, but his mate just wanted to lie around.
This takin looked like a cross between a goat and a guinea pig! I definitely wanted to take him home!
The Chicago Conservatory was a nice surprise, too!
I better quit now and save some for another post!
