Last Monday, after much waiting, I finally jumped aboard a Virgin Atlantic flight and made my way over to the windy city of Chicago. It's been a pretty turbulent week so far but, fortunately, one which has afforded me the opportunity to enjoy some of the fantastic sights the city has to offer and I'm certainly looking forward to the chance to celebrate a victory by a certain Illinois senator.

I'll try to put together a complete photo album as-and-when I have time.
