The streets of Philadelphia

Well it only took 2 days from NYC to Philly! It’s amazing how close such big cities can be! … and how easily we can make believe we’re just normal non-crazy tourists visiting the city.
We started by arriving at Marc & Cécile’s, good friends of Maëlle’s family, who helped us get dry after our first big downpour and offered us a wonderful evening and place to stay!
We then toured the country’s former capital (not sure they got over losing that title), its monuments (now where IS that LOVE thingy hiding?), its neighborhoods, independance hall, the cracked Liberty Bell (well, all from the outside given the Government shutdown)… The thesis of a walking day being more tiring than a biking day still holds! But a great visit together in what seemed to us like a more European city!
We then had an evening out with Martin (good friend and son of Mark and Cécile) and Dannie and slept over at their place! Might have been our first evening with people our age since we started our trip! But I think we pulled it off OK! And thank you so much for the great time!!
After 2 days in Philly, we went off to Southern Pennsylvania for new adventures! More on those soon!
