Travels with Charley: Abroad in Bridgeport

(Chicago, Illinois) After the Oblate meeting at the Monastery of the Holy Cross on Sunday, I walked over to Zaytune on Morgan at 31st Place for a Middle Eastern feast, and then I walked off my savory calories by proceeding south on Morgan to 35th Street, west on 35th to Racine, and north on Racine back to 31st Street, and then east on 31st to the Monastery of the Holy Cross at 31st and Aberdeen.  What a monastery!  What a meal! What a walk! What a day!  Thanks be to God!  Now, here are my snaps:
