Hyde Park and Seek: Photographic Proof That I Went to the University of Chicago (at least for a day as a tourist)

I had a very nice day yesterday with my mom in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, home to the University of Chicago.

Below is a photo recap, covering:
  • Robie House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright - We took a tour but interior photos were not allowed
  • Rockefeller Chapel
  • Oriental Institute Museum
  • Smart Museum of Art
  • Various sights around campus, including Henry Moore's Nuclear Energy sculpture

Who knew I was a god? Of course, my artifact was among the smallest in the museum.
