EU Day at the Mid-America Club

It’s been almost a week that I’ve been wanting to post these pictures! After returning from New York I attended “European Union Day” with Aita on the 80th floor of the Aon Center in the Mid-America Club. They picked May 9th as the Schuman Declaration had been signed 50 years earlier and marked the first steps towards the European Union. The event itself was a bit stuffy, with long winded speeches and, thankfully, copious amounts of wine! We took advantage of the spectacular views offered and had a few glasses. Wanted to share the view with the rest of you!

It had been foggy and quite humid all day. When getting off the ‘L’ at Addison a full platform and the cheers of thousands of fans greeted me. I just had to take a pic!

  1. your sister calls it the “El” still and I don’t fault anyone in chicago for calling it, that’s what it’s called. My mother even called the elevated trains in New York the “el” and still gets confused when I mention New York’s “L” train… but why… when typing… Do you type it as “L” rather than “El” …. See, these are the things that will keep me up at night.
