Despite the array of different designs, from large rectangular high rises, to shimmering and reflective curved buildings whose shape i can't even articulate, and then A frame looking riverside apartments, all the buildings all seemed to blend into each other so uniformly. At no point ...

We seemed to have drunk an awful lot but, since I was on holiday, the hangover was slight. Met Bill and Eva by the Chicago Architectural Foundation office and we climbed aboard the First Lady boat.
