Walking City...

Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time...

Living in Chicago, we do not have access to a car on a daily basis.  Being in the city we mostly walk, take a taxi or if we need to go on a trip we rent a car.  Not a problem.  This is actually more convenient because overnight parking in our building is close to $30 per night.  Occasionally we do this, for instance when my niece comes over we rent a car to go pick her up  and we use the overnight parking.

A good thing about not having a car in the city is that parking is difficult to come by and expensive.  Makes more sense to take a cab or to walk.  The way I see it, we are getting exercise at the same time.  After a day's walk everything has twice its usual value. 

One thing that is a bit difficult is going grocery shopping.  We have managed to figure out how to do it.  We each have our backpacks and we only buy little at a time.  This way we go grocery shopping quite often during the week....  Exercise and fresh air never hurt.
Have a fun day all!

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me...
Me thinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow..
