we spent a week out in illinois, just 30 minutes out from the windy city. alas the circumstances of our visit didn’t let us venture that way but I got to see parts of the state that most visitors wouldn’t pay much mind to.
case in point. to peoria! over yonder is steam, or at least that’s what we hope was coming out of those factories.
there was a pit stop along the way. it was a 3 hr drive after all…..
then it was off to galesburg, another 30 minutes logged in the car.growing up in major metropolises (hk +sf), having a yard was a novelty. out here, it’s a given.
