In the three months I lived in Chicago last year, I never really felt like I truly appreciated living in such a unique, iconic city. But now I know that sometimes it takes moving away to realize the amazing things your hometown has to offer. During a recent trip to Chicago in July, I had the opportunity to spend a day walking through the Windy City, taking in the sights, the smells and the sounds. I took my iPhone cam to the streets to see the city through a tourist’s eyes, and here’s where the journey led me.
