It took two seconds to realise Chicago is a fab city, just as it took two seconds to realise Arlie Beach is a dump. Everyone you speak to loves living here and stepping out onto the streets you can smell fabness in the air, see it in the art deco architecture and taste it in the excellent but reasonably priced risottos. And, of course, this is Obama's old stomping ground. And Oprah's. The three Os. Oprah, Obama, O'Mahoney. We could be superheros. I would wear a cape.

And if you visit Chicago (and if you can afford it) stay at the Park Hyatt. What a lovely hotel. Not only is it a typical Park Hyatt full of baths and carpets you could drown in, it also staffs some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. From the doorman to the concierge, everyone is salt-of-the-earth- Chicago goodness.

Ah, yes, Chicago makes it to the list of places we'd like to live. And not only because we've discovered another favourite restaurant. (Quartinos - delish!) But time, as ever, is moving on and we've got a plane to catch... :(
