Wow, my last post, of Japan, seems like forever ago. I am happy to say that I finally managed another trip with the justification of going to a work-related conference. No, it was actually a pretty good conference. It had been a long time since I had been to the City of Brotherly Love and this trip, albeit short, ended up being my most thorough Philadelphia trip to date.
Naomi and I spent most of our time in sessions learning about the latest and greatest in foreign language teaching, but when we had a free hour here and there we walked around Philadelphia and saw some historical/touristy sites like the Liberty Bell and the art museum (along with the Rocky steps of course). Also we had some AMAZING food. I gotta hand it to you Phily, you enticed me with your Phily Cheesesteaks but you kept me coming back for me with your Cuban, Chinese Dim Sum, Malaysian wonderfulness and oysters galore!!! Foreign languages, a very walkable city (populated by Philadephians and all the people participating in the Philadelphia Marathon), and culinary delights makes for nearly an ideal weekend away for this lady! Hope to visit you again Philadelphia! Loved it!
