Chinapalooza 2010 – Day 2

The actual kick-off to the Chinapalooza was Friday evening.  We had the whole day to explore Chicago and the boys decided that they wanted to experience the Sky Ledge at the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower).  We walked to the Willis Tower and made our ascent up to the 103rd floor.  This floor serves as an observation deck and you can look out over the city and see for distances.  The real attraction are these glass box enclosures that project out of the building so you you can see straight down below your feet.

After the Sky Deck, we stopped by my nephew’s barber shop (Hammersmith Hair).  My nephew didn’t know we were in town and was quite surprised to see us.  We asked if he could give Big Tuna a “college makeover.”  My nephew was more than happy to oblige us and he gave Big Tuna a great new look!  Godzilla also wanted in on some of the action, so he worked on Godzilla too.
