Chicago - My Kinda Town!

We left Madison after our stay at the Home Depot and decided we needed to dump and top off with water before spending the weekend in Chicago.   We drove to Camping World and the dump was free and so was the water.
We took back roads to Chicago and arrived to the windy city around 3 p.m. but traffic was a mess.   We found our way to our friends house off of 35th St.  The kids were home and their grandmother from Monterrey.   We chatted until Fabiola arrived from work.  She is a secretary in a local school and Enrique does job training.   He came home about an hour later.   Fabiola fixed a great dinner and we were up until 1 a.m. talking about what had happened over the last 20 years.   They have three kids; Fabiola 14, Frank and Luis are 12.  Great kids and very active.
They have a huge driveway in the back of their house and they insisted we park here at their house.  The rv fits fine and they share the other side with their neighbor in the upstairs flat.   It is Saturday morning and we are heading downtown for "tacos".  Yippie!   Some great Mexican food.
More later today.


  1. Sounds like fun....enjoy Chicago, we loved our five days there!

  2. I think the next few days are going to be very special for you. Lucky you, RV parking in Chicago, unheard of.

  3. So nice to be able to park at your friends place there right in town. Have fun.

  4. I've been enjoying your trip north.
