Self-styled world's greatest architect

To Oak Park, Illinois on the trail of Frank Lloyd Wright. Took the Green Line train out via Cicero through the suburban wasteland. Breakfast at Delia's Kitchen on Lake Street before taking the FLW walking tour, with headset, to neighbourhood properties, followed by tour of the FLW house, ably conducted by Audrey the docent. We finished at the FLW Unity Church where the amiable folks talked us into taking another tour. There was a magnificent art deco Post Office across the street - comparable to one in Nashville, Tennessee. Photographed the Lake Cinema (not FLW). Back to the Windy City where we detrained at Wabash & Adams, with the start of Route 66 close by. Stocked up on supper at Au Bon Pain on Adams and crashed out back at the hotel.
