As I flew up from London the skies looked eerie. The view of the countryside lacked clairty and the vapour trails wierdly were hanging there long after the planes had disappeared. A phenomenon I haven't seen before.
Chicago was memorable. Perhaps 4 images that begin to show what is a very charismatic and absorbing city. Lovely people, but not without its problems in the poorer parts of the city.
Strange to be back in America after 6 years and to see up front and close the problems that it is grappling with. Yes the economy is picking up but unemployment and massive indebtedeness is everywhere you look.
