Dear Chicago –
For over a decade you have been my favorite city. From your timeless architecture, to the nostalgia of Wrigley Field, from the lore of hosting the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893 to the bulls & bears at Chicago Board of Trade, you just blew me away. Yet, I feel the time has come for our love affair to take a back seat, as my heart has stumbled upon an unforeseen joy.
My new love is full of food, fashion and life. There are many characteristics that you hold in common. However, my heart now belongs to Melbourne.
In the movie Eat, Pray, Love, there is a discussion on how every city has a word, well Melbourne’s word is COLOR.
Enjoy a glimpse into Australia’s cultural capital.
PS I am saving the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the National Gallery Victoria for a later post.
