Some crazy designs here in Chicago, from buildings to furniture and everything in between. But this Radisson Blu Hotel above took the cake. This is looking up the side.

But for today, we decided we were going to grab a kayak and head up the Chicago River. And thanks to Ashley at URBAN KAYAKS, we did just that. She hooked us up with a tandem and we carved our way through boats and buildings to see some of the greatest architecture in the world. I highly recommend it, although not for the inexperienced. It can get a little hairy at times when you get squeezed between boats.

Found some great old photos of town while we were in a cool lobby also. Check ’em out.
