|Just before 6.00am|
At 6.12am, I realised I hadn't actually taken a photo of the clock in the room which actually required special training to be able to work. Luckily I didn't need it. The hefty-looking bedside lamp sits behind.
It was a lovely walk all the way down the avenue, dropped in and out of a few spots along the way including the contemporary photography museum and the architecture centre. There are so many universities as well with their shopfronts along this street. Back for a 2.00pm transfer out to the airport, early yes, but allowing for possible traffic congestion as advised by the concierge.
|Preparing for take-off, |
I was a bit taken aback by the immediate 'analysis' on air (CNN)...trying to determine whether or not the bomb was set off by Al Qaeda depending on the explosive substance...this was within minutes, no-one could possibly know at that point. And immediately the assumption that it was terrorism. All very interesting.
At 6.12pm, we had boarded the plane and were awaiting take-off...to Dallas for the long haul home. Quite an unanticipated end to the Chicago trip.
