Philadelphia, The City
of Brotherly Love, is a contrast from what I saw the day before at
St. John's, Newfoundland. The US city
was very populous with a significant number of homeless people.
Just like any tourist city, there was a subway
from the airport directly to downtown. Peter and I traversed the chilly
weather of Philly that I had to warm up up on a steam vent.
It was an easy walk along the historical
spots first at the National
Philadelphia Visitor Center,
lastly at the Tomb of
the Unknown Soldier.
After our historical tour, we met up with my
high school classmate, Roberto Velasco. We had lunch at
Pat's King of Steaks and
tasted the famous Philly cheese steak.
After lunch, Robert toured us to Penn's
Landing where we saw South New Jersey at the other side of Delaware River.
From there, we visited the world famous statue of
Rocky Balboa at
the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
We capped our tour by visiting the
Love Park, hung-out at a
local bar then headed back to Toronto.
