Come on, babe
Why don’t we paint the town?..
And all that jazz

There are not too many people in this World that haven’t seen the musical Chicago, or… at least heard of the Broadway show by the same name (that’s also based on the same play).  Chicago, lovingly called Chi-Town by the locals, is one of the most famous cities in the United States (second only to New York City).  In fact, Chi-Town is very much similar to its bigger sister, NYC, in terms of its high-rising buildings, its vibrant food and art scene, and of course its windy, Arctic climate (though New York’s weather is a lot less extreme than Chicago’s).

So if you haven’t had a chance yet to visit this magnificent city – the gallery below will provide you with a quick visual introduction.  P.S. and if you’re planning to visit Chicago soon – come during the Summer, if you’re not prepared to be very cold.
