Dream place to visit

What place have you always dreamed about going to?  Mine is the Amazon or the Serengeti in Africa.  Probably seem like odd places to most people.  I have a love for animals and nature that is to the exotic side.  The way the human race is changing the earth and causing the extinction of many species, lions may not exist except for in zoos in the next 30 years.  Don't even get me started what we are doing on the Amazon and the rainforest.  Here are a few pictures to keep in mind next time you think of it.

  Wish I was in Hawaii right now.  Been there twice.  A fantastic time to be anytime of year.  People are fabulous.  Kind, friendly and very relaxed.  I've been to Oahu, which has Honolulu and Waikiki Beach.  I have also been to the  Big Island Twice.  That is my favorite of the two.  I hope to get to go to check the other 5 out.  The farmer's markets are like nothing here in the States, they are so much better.  The fruit is so much larger and fresh!  Here are a few pictures from the Big Island mostly.  One is from Waikiki Beach with Honolulu in the background.  You have beaches of all different colors, black, white, green and tan.  I even saw on that looked like salt and pepper. Enjoy and Relax looking at them.  Sorry I can't afford to give you a plane ticket, but this is the best I can do.

Chicago, IL

Chicago is a great city. Navy Pier with the lights of the city reflecting off Lake Michigan at night is magical. The variety of ethnic food is out of this world. Your can go from China town to Greek town in just a few minutes by bus or taxi. Be fair warned about the taxi drivers, my daughter thinks their driving skills are a little on the crazy side. The Sears Tower (now Willis Tower) is still very high. You can stand off on a see through ledge now with nothing under you but plexy glass if you desire. After that you may want to wind down at the Russian Tea Room, for a cup of yes, tea. It's a little pricey though. Don't forget to take in the theater district while you are there. One of my favorites is to visit the museums. I really like the Field Museum (Natural History). This is probably one of is not my favorite city to visit. If you get a chance you must go. :)
