Cloud Gate AKA The Bean, in Chicago, Illinois, from La Quinta

 Greetings From Route LQ (Hotel chain La Quinta)

Like a Funhouse Mirror - For the whole city

The Bean
The artist, Anish Kapoor, called it "Cloud Gate." Chicago locals call it, "The Bean." Kapoor may be miffed, but we love this giant structure, which sits right in the heart of Chicago, reflecting the skyline from all angles.

Oooooh! I love that thing, whatever it's called. I'd love to see it one of these days.

My hubby had to go to Chicago for a few days a couple of years ago and I went with him. I had the whole city to myself during the day and walked and saw EVERYTHING! It really is an amazing city. I think the only thing I had to take a cab to was the aquarium. It's been a few years so I could be wrong. The 'bean' is pretty cool. Make a point of going! I highly recommend the entire city.
