Bits of History

The Chicago Tribune building, which looks like a huge church, is only a few blocks away from the river, on the north side.  The guide had told us that the walls of the tower were actually covered with bits of other famous buildings from around the world.  Like the pyramids.  I wanted to check it out, and, as it was on the way to our next stop, we took a peek.

The walls at ground level, up to about as tall as a tall guy can reach/jump, they have pieces of famous places actually cemented in place.  My brothers ran around touching as many of the pieces as possible, within a few minutes feeling the Great Pyramid and St. Peter’s, the White House and Angkor Wat.  It was pretty cool, but I wonder if anyone ever tries to steal the pieces…
