Hi everyone out there, My names Tracey. I have a degree in computer engineering and am currently doing a phd in wireless comms so one might think I should know more than I do but it seems I come, I learn, I use, I forget.. Thus is my never ending anti-cognition cycle.. Hoping to learn a lot here and hopefully get some help from people more wise and intimitatingly informed than myself,

Catch you all on the flip side,

Even the experts forget, or simply don't have the same amount of expertise in all areas.
Welcome to BC!

Chicago is blessed by many fine Museums---the Natural History Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry are both world-class. If you enjoy shopping, you could walk along the Miracle Mile downtown and spend a fortune. Chicago is doubly blessed with great architecture and a park running for some length between the city itself and Lake Michigan (beaches, Lincoln Park Zoo, some great views of the Loop). You might enjoy, since I THINK they are still running in September, one of the many cruises (some in smaller boats along the Chicago River that winds through downtown, some on much larger ships that cruise the Lake for longer periods). If you enjoy heights, either go to the top of the Hancock or Sears Tower (we refuse to change its name). You can stop at Water Tower, which doubles as a tourist information site, and as far as I know, get a week's bus and El pass for a reasonable cost---everything important and fun is reachable by public transportation, so you don't have to have a car; you can take the El to Wrigley Field and watch the Cubs loose. Nightlife and restaurants, as well as most of the important places are all located in a rectangle approximately ten blocks wide and forty blocks long. If you have particular interests, let me know.
