Return to the Great Midwest


It didn't take long on the trip up to the Northwoods of Wisconsin to be reminded I was no longer on the east coast...


...yet I survived the humiliation long enough to watch the dazzling artistry and grace that is the Min-Aqua Bats, the nation's longest running amateur water-ski team...


...I continued on to Chicago and caught up with the youngsters admiring themselves in Grant Park...


...and finished the trip in Millenium Park to the sounds of Mali's Toumani Diabate & The Symmetric Orchestra...
