Philadelphia...We the People

PHILADELPHIA! Home to a cracked bell that no king or dictator would value but WE THE PEOPLE venerate as a remembrance of the struggle of that brave generation who declared our independence. And later a constitution drafted to rival any existing document known to man. What a great country!

Independence Hall was inspiring and the tour was quite interesting. They even had George Washington's chair :).

Later we toured the Franklin Institute, Philly's most visited museum. It was a very hands on place, not quite as interesting as the Natural History Museum in NYC.

We also got a chance to have some real Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. MMMMM. good.

Headed off to New Jersey and Delaware due to a flood forced detour. More to come tomorrow.
