In the Loop

May 19, 2007

 

Another post from this prompt:

The rumble of the El overhead drowns out the car horns, sirens, and the thumping bass emanating from the car stereo of the driver who assumes we all want to hear his music.  If the Chicago Loop is anything, it is loud.  Loud and busy with the hum of people going about their workday.  Its likely that lots of people will bump into you rudely, bums will ask you for change on every street corner,  and the beady-eyed pigeons will squawk and flock towards you (they have virtually no fear of humans).  Despite all the noise and general harassment, the energy of the Loop is palpable and revitalizing.  Besides, if all the commotion gets to be too much, Grant Park is only a short walk away.
