Taking a break from the day, I thought I would file this report. I didn't start the day with a specific goal but at some point decided to go to the Navy Pier and to get there using only busses and walking, no trains.
The 22 bus stops just around the corner from my hotel and took me as far south as I needed to go before heading east, which I did on foot.
The Navy Pier is evidently the number one tourist attraction in Chicago, which is weird because it's not all that amazing. I mean, it's okay, and the ferris wheel is cool, but there are cooler things in Chicago than what ultimately is an amusement mall.
To be continued...
