... a mission finding the shuttle, and then get the voucher organised because I only had an electronic version. It was quite a debacle but the staff were very helpful and we eventually made it into the shuttle. Heavy traffic (well it seemed heavy to me) coming into the city. They had a great sign saying that all cell phones in cars in Chicago are hands free and we watched a lass in a car in the lane beside us texting with no hands on ...
