Lake Point Tower Chicago

Photographed on September 15th, 2001

Sigrid Klop asked if I have been in the USA on September 11th, 2001!

Yes, I have been there, we were camping and found out at the campground office. As we did not have any TV, we only followed the events on radio, it was very difficult to imagine what really happened, only days later we saw the collapse of the World Trade Center on TV.

After that, we went to Chicago, where I took this photo of the Lake Point Tower with this big flag on one of the windows!!


BTW the World Trade Center in NY has been one of my fave buildings, which I visited many times, I actually had a wonderful birthday dinner in the restaurant, where a lot of people died!

I have two WTC photos on my stream, very good memories, unfortunately with a very sad ending!
