Chicago (continued)

Carol, who gave me the tour of the botanical garden on my first day, works in downtown Chicago on the fortieth floor of a skscraper. We went there to meet her and to marvel at the view from her office windows.

Then she took us on a tour of some of her favourite interiors, which were truly amazing illustrations of the style and wealth of Chicago in its heyday.

Carol also took us through another area of park...

...where we admired the Victorian style bedding scheme, as well as a horse statue to which someone had added legwarmers.

We ended the tour at one of Carol's favourite installations, an array of giant legs...

where we rested our own for a while...

...before parting company with Carol and heading back to our hotel.
