A taste of Philadelphia

Hello World! My tour of the big country continues, I'm now in Whitehall, Pennsylvania hanging out with Alicia and Bear.

But today I want to share with you a brief rundown of the four days I spent in Philadelphia with Meg - so here's an epic photo post!

First up we went shopping at South Street, its such a cute and quirky street with lots of fun stores and art is everywhere!

We visited and amazing mosaic wonderland called "Philadelphia Magic Gardens" - a space where a local artist had created a huge mosaic. It's so beautiful!




We went to visit the Liberty Bell - its actually much smaller than you think!

We also visited a beautiful portraiture gallery.


We also visited Benjamin Franklin's house and post office. 

We visited the Love Park & I took a cheesy photo!
We went to visited the Rocky Statute and posed appropriately!
 We visited the Rodin Museum and I had my photo taken by the "Gates of Hell" and checked out some of the other amazing sculptures.

 Finally we went to the Eastern State Penn and got to see a recreation of Al Capone's cell and check out some amazing old buildings.

Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any suggestions?
