The Chicago ‘EL’ makes Chicago a really easy town for public transportation. But that elevated train line that runs the Chicago Loop is comprised of a LOT of stairs. Metal stairs, flights and flights of them. No elevator that I could find… so it means going up and down those stairs many times a day.
There was a time when my asthma and bad back would have prompted me to give up and take a taxi, but for a pittence of cost, the EL is really the affordable way to go. So last weekend i kept saying to my traveling companion, “Thank goodness for Pilates!” during our long weekend in Chicago. Yeah now Chicago is MY kind of town!
