Nice.  The famous Sears Tower was once the tallest in the world. In its basement is an inscription honoring the structural engineer,  a Pakistani.

Memories of Chicago Chinatown

We've been to Chicago a couple of times visiting family and friends.

One Monday morning, we were looking for a dim sum place so we went into this restaurant that seemed to be filled with young men in their 20's, just sitting there looking around and drinking tea. I called the place "The Bad Element Cafe".

There is a small park or courtyard there with sculptures of all the animals of the Chinese zodiac. I tried to get Mrs Rong to pose in front of the monkey sculpture, but she refused, fearing that people would be able to calculate her age.

Without Chinatown, no major Amerikan City can be complete!

It's a needed accessory!
