Scenes from Our Neighborhood

So we have spent this week exploring the neighborhood in between doing fun stuff like getting phones, getting a new drivers license and organizing our stuff.  It has been beautiful autumn weather here and its been nice getting out and exploring our new (old) home.

The lake, art, funky buildings and what American neighborhood would be complete without 7-11 and McDonalds?  So for those of you still reading, a poll……..

Is anyone interested in hearing a bit about our observations as we move back to Chicago?  Is it interesting or just annoying?  When this whole blog started out 3+ years ago, Matt was writing a lot of “wow, this is really interesting about London stuff”.  Is it time to do a bit of this in reverse?  Let us know what you think.

    Yay! great to see scenes from your US neihborhood. You already know my vote is a big ‘YES’ – I am so curious to hear about the differences upon ‘re-entry’. Bill Bryson set the precedent with ‘notes from a small country’ and then ‘I’m a stranger here myself’, and he must be right – so go for it!

    Mmm, love the visual tour. Yes for sure notes on re-entry will be read, especially if you keep up the picture quota;-) good luck with re-entry to the american workplace. Will wave regretfully as we pass overhead on our way west on wed. X x
