This weekend I went to Philly to visit my friend/college roommate. She's been living in Philly for two years now, and I've never been to Philly -- or Pennsylvania for that matter -- so I decided to go visit. I flew out of Nashville on Southwest ... the funniest guys in the sky! The flight attendants were hilarious. They began explaining the safety instructions about using your seat as a flotation device: "In the event that Southwest Airlines becomes Southwest Cruise lines ... "
And then, my personal favorite: "We would like to remind you there is no smoking in the bathroom. If we catch you being naughty in the potty, there is a $2000 fine. And if you wanted to pay that much to fly to Philadelphia, you would have flown American."
|Jess left her car in KS, so we took the El. It was my first time on a subway.|
|We got touristy and saw the Liberty Bell.|
|Constitution Hall. We went on a tour in the afternoon.|
|I can't remember who this guy is ... I think he started the Navy or something. |
The weather was beautiful. I love how many parks Philly has.
|We walked downtown toward Love Park. Cool architecture.|
|Love! This was a lot smaller than I imagined!|
|Fountain in Love Park|
|Reading Terminal - This cool indoor marketplace with tons and tons of stores and people.|
By then it was about time to get me to the airport. We walked to her friend's house to borrow a car and Jess drove me to the airport. My flight out of Philly was delayed an hour, so I didn't get home until 8 p.m. Philly was cool, and it was great to see my friend, but I don't think it lands on my top 10 places I'd want to live.
