    Friend or Foe?

    May 12, 2017 in the United States

    What about being in Philadelphia is a new experience for you?

    Pass! Stairs! Swipe! Ouch! Hustle! Big Step! Hold on! Ahhhhhh :) The train life is one of many transportation styles in the hustle and bustle city life of Philadelphia. Along with the helpful buses, Ubers, taxis, bikes, and simple walking, the train is another valuable transportation option that has proved to still be a new experience for me. Growing up my entire life in Winfield, KS, I was never exposed to such a way of getting around from place to place. From high school choir and orchestra trips my senior year to the Big Apple and the Windy City, as well as to our nation’s capital last summer for an NEA conference (National Education Association), riding this magnificently constructed transportation system is one that still takes quite a bit of adjustment each time. The people of Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, unlike me, rely on the use of the train system just as much as I rely on a car to get me from point A to point B back home in Kansas. I have entitled this post Friend or Foe for a reason though. Here is list of the following positives and negatives that the lovely train encompasses.
     Pros:
    • Fast transportation
    • Easily accessible
     Cons:
    • Loud
    • Dangerous
    Overall, the Philadelphia train system, although it possesses various negative attributes, strives to provide its citizens with an affordable and functional transportation system. This was a definite adjustment for me, but once I got the hang of it I felt comfortable enough to tackle it on my own – it’s a completely different lifestyle of its own.

    Tours and Puddles

    May 13, 2017 in the United States

    (13) Braved the rain to go on a tour around the historical part of Philly! Our tour guide took us around to see a ton of important historical sites, but my fave was Ben Franklin's toilet (lol). I liked seeing Ben Franklin's library since books are my thing and all, but seeing a sign about no pets bummed me out. Thanks for the history Ben & Philly!Read more

    Eigenlijk was ik bang dat het een beetje zou tegenvallen, omdat mensen het vaak over Washington en New York hebben en Philadelphia overslaan. Blij dat ik dat niet heb gedaan: het is een hartstikke leuke stad! Alles is op loopafstand en er zijn wat historische dingen te zien: de oudste straat van de V.S. en de Liberty bell bijvoorbeeld.

    Maar vooral de sfeer bevalt me wel. Er zijn straatmuziekanten, muurschilderingen en op South street ook veel mozaiek. In zijn Magical Gardens heeft een lokale artiest een hele tuin vol gemaakt (schijnbaar van afval). In Spruce street harbor park hangen overal lichtjes en kun je met een hapje en een drankje 's avonds lekker ontspannen 😊

    De markthal was ook gezellig en er werden zo veel lekkere dingen verkocht dat ik mezelf echt moest inhouden hihi. Op zondag was het er hartstikke levendig: mensen die net uit de kerk kwamen zaten nu met hun nette zondagskostuum een philly cheesesteak weg te werken 😋
