"CHICAGO-USA "Urbs in Horto" [city in a garden]" ISPARTACUS's Profile

Retirement...La Dolce Vita.....Italy anyone ?

Hi! I'm pj and am currently in retirement...Hooray ! I am a born and raised Chicagoan. Chicago is a cosmopolitan city on a lake front with many fine parks and tree lined neighborhood streets. We also have many fine world class museums and fine restaurants with an abundance of ethnic dinning. I have not traveled quite as extensively as many of the other VT members, but I have been to many strange and exotic places, often courtesy of the U.S. military. At age 19 I spent a TOUR in Viet-Nam and traveled all over the central highlands of that beautiful country. Also did a TOUR in Korea. Took a trip to Bangkok while in that theatre. I have criss crossed the U.S.A., been to Canada, Mexico, Chile the Caribbean, and Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have not yet posted my B. A. Photos.

    Hi PJ, the Stained Glass museum is great and even better because it's free :-) Ha ha, it was hard to miss me at Pierogi Fest 2008, I was everywhere on all kinds of merchandise!

    Hi Pj, thanx for visiting my Vietnam page. So at 19 you served in Vietnam, and you seem to have good memories from then, that is good! I loved Vietnam and I will be back there one day soon :)
