Philadelphia - Day 1

I am in Philadelphia for the American Association of Museums Annual Meeting. We had an open morning so we took in a few of the sites.

Betsy Ross' house

My boss loves coins so we went here. He has a full set of state quarters for both the Denver and Philadelphia mint.

While we were there I broke a hundred dollar bill. I figured if any place should be able to break $100 bill it would be there. I told the gift shop clerk that and she laughed. I like it when I make people laugh. Oh and I bought some mint chap stick cause my lips hurt real bad.

Then we went to Independence Hall and we had a very loud tour guide.

Last but absolutely not least, I ate a cheesesteak with cheese whiz and grilled onions – so good. Sorry no picture - I was really hungry and I ate it too fast.

Oh and we saw some really pretty flowers. I like how they grow right out of the branches.

Tri training update here. Ha - you probably thought I was slacking!

I'm so jealous that you're in Philly! If you get another chance for a cheese steak, try the Soho Pizzeria on Market street. Mmmmm. So good. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
