Love Park in Central Philly :) The fountain right next to it is very clean. I like! Also, I thought it was funny that I saw two love sculptures in Philly (second one on the campus of UPenn!) and didn't get to see any at all in NYC! sad face. Woke up at 8. Showered. Used my last meal swipe ever (through NYU at least) at Dunkin'. Then was on our way to Penn Station! Took a road trip with Ligia all the way to Philly (2 hour bus ride) met up with DJ first... thank you for walking 16+ blocks to come meet up with me :) Met with Baby Bop around City Hall but she was with her friends so DJ, Gia, and I just did our own things. First stop, Love Park. 'nuff said! Then walked to City Hall, took a look and realized that it was too darn hot to do anything so we walked into a Macy's to "ask for directions" (to go anywhere, really! haha) I wanted a Philly Cheesesteak (basically my main point in going to Philly, definitely not to visit DJ or BB or Gizmo haha) so we got directions to Anthony's Pizzeria. Split one with DJ! Delicious but I am very sad that I didn't take a picture :( Walked around some more... went through Chinatown :) Walked to Independence Visitor's Center and looked at the gift shop, took pictures of the Liberty Bell, and did all the touristy stuff. We took the subway to University City to visit UPenn. The campus is very colonial (is that the right word? haha) and beautiful. Not very modern, which could be a good thing! Decided we were gonna go visit BB at her place that they were all staying at. So we got directions to the trolley and on the way, I bought a $3 box of mixed fruit. Best investment of the day! Got hydrated and was happy again :P Took the trolley, met the nice driver who dropped us off right around the corner, then we just hung out at BB's until her and I went to go pick up Gizmo from the 30th Street Station. Went back to the apt, watched them pack... watched Cash Cab (I cannot believe we have not tried to look for this cab this month I have been here!) then watched dangerous animals eat each other on Discovery Channel. OUCH! Walked to the trolley and took it to 30th Street Station, got some dinner (KFC and MickeyDs, the two worst possible places to eat... and I had both at one meal haha) then headed to the bus. Bus was late for an hour and a half! Meanwhile, we played a game called contact, which was fun :) Entertained ourselves... got on the bus and was on our way home! Got dropped off at Penn Station, walked to Herald Square with DJ, BB, Giz, and Gia then parted our ways. Just got back a little less than an hour ago and showered... Gonna go get some tacos with Lily and NJ soon :) Leaving tomorrow at 1pm for the airport to save money on the transportation haha. I am really gonna miss New York City. I kind of already do! Random thought of the day: Where did I get my geographic skills from? I was in Philly for less than 5 hours and was giving directions to people who were visitors there for almost five days. How are some people just full of so much knowledge? Like Gizmo, he knew almost all the most obscure answers from the Cash Cab show! Is it in the genes we inherited? What part of our habits, personalities, traits, etc. is inherited, and what other parts are socially or geographically learned? That's sort of interesting to me! OH! and got TWO more postcards in the mail today :) Thank you Guac and Shanna <3 (much more to say, but not interested in putting it all on blast on this PUBLIC website :P also, I realized, by writing so much on here, when you actually talk to me, I won't need to say much but "read my blog" lol, which is definitely NOT what I want in a friendship!) Thank you for helping me help others :)
