Papa arrived safe and sound in Chicago

Twentyone hours after I wake up this morning I entered my hotel room in Chicago (Best Western Riverside North) - the same as Anna I did have 2 years ago.
The journey went as planned. And as smooth can these Days. e-ticket check in to American Airlines took and hour or so in Frankfurt and immigration at O'Hare took excactly one hour. I rented a red Dodge Charger at the Airport and went downdown in about 35 minutes.

Here is the view from my hotel room.

More to come...

So happy to read that you arrived safely, Tor! I haven't been in Chicago for almost 40 years!!! But, I liked it a lot when I was there, 'back in the day'.
Hope your trip to Michigan goes smoothly, as well!

What a very long day for you. I hope you are able to adjust to the time zone change. I am horrible at doing that!
