Philadelphia Wrap-up

Beware of Frog, originally uploaded by ultraclay!.

On Tuesday we went to Reading Terminal Market first thing. I bought some smoked spices that I'm really looking forward to using. Hickory smoked black pepper and garlic are going to be really useful in the pre-bbq season. After that I had to do a little shopping over on Market. We went to the Macy's that used to be Wanamaker's. It's a beautiful old building and yet another example of Macy's gobbling up landmark department stores.
We really meant to do something cultural or educational. There's a King Tut exhibit at the Franklin Institute that we were going to go to, but by the time we were done with all that we didn't feel like doing anything. We spent most of the rest of the day hanging out. We had to extend the trip a day, so we moved to a different hotel. Then we just hung out a little more. My aunt got in that night and we got a snack with her before turning in. >BR> I got nearly everything I wanted out of this trip to Philadelphia. That's to say I didn't do much besides hang out, eat good food and drink beer. Staying at a new hotel let us explore some new-to-us neighborhoods, even if the hotel wasn't so great.

My one regret is that, somehow, I managed to spend almost a week in Philadelphia without eating a cheesesteak. I don't know how I managed that.

I am ashamed. Next time I'll just have to have that many more cheesesteaks.
