Day 1772 – 1773, Philadelphia: The City of Brotherly Love

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Oct - 04 - 2015

My host Steve is an interesting person; among other things he has been a professional cyclist and travelled across Europe as a DJ. Now he works in IT in Philadelphia and I was invited to stay for a couple of days. Thanks Steve!

In the morning went into the city to check out the Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell – a must see if you are in Philly!

After the daily dose of American History, a bit of nature was in order as well. I had already seen a part of the Wissahickon Valley Park by bike yesterday. It’s a great place for a hike as well.

I have been doing a lot of cycling and meeting a lot of people lately. In fact so many that keeping this blog up to date has very much been impossible. As Steve was going back to work the next day I finally got a chance to spend some hours in front of the computer doing updates and planning the next part of the trip. And just as well to be indoor – it was raining the whole day.

In the night we went over the bridge to New Jersey to meet even more people. We joined a meeting with a number of guys from the Frankford Radio Club. A great way to end some very nice days in Philadelphia.

Tomorrow it’s back on the bike. Next stop New York!
