As much as my face lights up in the mountains -- El Bandito lights up in the city. Oh, he's grown to love the mountains too; I see that same expression on his face in some of the most remote and beautiful places we go together.
But he grew up in the city, and he loves exploring neighborhoods, revisiting favorites, and finding new haunts.
I love wandering with him, that we can just stroll for hours without specific destination or plan, and still enjoy ourselves. And I happen to love the Windy City on its own merits, but that's a different post.
I love that we can find joy in each other's favorite places, even though they're so very divergent.
