A Night in Another Country

[Rob] Our last day in town was spent hunting down pastries - more on that once I get the pictures uploaded. We met some old friends for lunch and had a sandwich down by the Sears Tower. Tyler loaded us on a train and we headed south to where Cabrini Greens housing project used to be. We were trying to get to Hyde Park, but suffice it to say, it didn't happen. So we jumped back on the train and recouped, and then we headed north again to Devon St. This street really is amazine. We were starving at this point so we jumped into an Indian restaurant that had a number of articles and awards posted in its window. I thought that would be a good sign. What we ended up with was over-priced mediocre food. We were the only ones in the restaurant, and as we continued our walk we saw every other restaurant had plenty of other customers. Must not have been the best choice.

But then we continued down the street until we saw the Georgian/Russian section, followed by the Hasidic section. At one point we jumped into a drug store to get some aspirin and in line were two white gay men (our friends), an African American Muslim couple, a Pakistani man, a Hasidic man, and an elderly white couple. That's Devon St.
