Hello Jyoti! I've been visiting your site and I find it really amazing. Your pictures are beautiful and (according to my son, who's translating it and my messages for me) your commentaries are really interesting. Personally, I don't speak English as well as he does. You really must love this city to spend so much time describing it. I'm from Belgium and I also really like Chicago, I've been there a few times already and taken lots of pictures. My daughter-in-law is American, her parents live in Chicago and she and my son also live in the area. I'm going to add a link to your site on my blog! Best regards.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I just surfed on yours, and particularly the archives of your "photo journal", and I'm really impressed by how diverse and beautiful your pictures are.
