Welcome / Bienvenue / Ciao

This is just a little blog highlighting interesting, odd, out-of-place and unusual spots within the Chicago city limits. Places that make you feel like you're somewhere else. Areas that make you doubt you're even in the city and sometimes even make you feel like you're in completely different city or country entirely. Enjoy. And remember, these places really are in Chicago.
