Chicago O'Hare Field was named after Lt. Edward Henry "Butch" O'Hare.....who, in 1942, was this country's FIRST top gun. There is an informative display about this hero between terminals 1 & 2.
One of these days, I'm going to count how many Starbuck Coffee shops dot the various terminals at O'Hare's huge airport complex.
United's, terminal 1, in the B concourse, has a huge dinosaur display, on loan from Chicago's Natural History Museum. It's a hit for children of any age.
The famed light show can be found in the underground people mover between United's concourse B & C. The ever changing color, along with the music adds charm to what would otherwise be just a tunnel!
My favorite place to hang out......an oasis called the Red Carpet Club. It's United's private club (membership required). With customer service agents, food, beverages, rest rooms, tv's, internet etc.....it's a more pleasant place to stay during layovers.
Look what greeted me as I made my way to the 1 baggage claim area in Redding, CA. I thought it was a perfect way to say hello to a tired traveler after over 13 hrs. and 4 flights!
I've never stayed at an Oxford Suites before.......def. a thumbs up for me......love the 5 bed pillows!
I had a yummy omelet, overlooking the pool at my hotel this morning. The day is certainly shaping up as I try to adjust my body clock to the 3 hr. time change. Off for a bit of site seeing before the evening lecture..... My camera will be in hand.....
