A little bit of work, a bit of play and a whole lot of travel: Days 3 and 3.5 of my trip to UNITY in Chicago

I am absolutely determined to finish my Chicago recaps today. That way, I’ll be able to start blogging about other stuff like the Olympics, because according to my stats, that seems to be what most people read here anyway.
