Philadelphia: part 1

I’m really considering changing the name of this blog to Philly the place to be/coolest city on the planet. I always have so much fun when I visit (only twice…) and look forward to more travels there in the future. I really think I’d like to move there, although I haven’t been mugged/jumped there yet like many residence so I have a pretty romanticized view of it. Also because of the BYOB I rotate between hungover and drunk all day which leads me to believe I might not have the most accurate view of it… (you can read more about my obsession with BYOBs here).

I had amazing food, drinks and learned a lot. Turns out that since I am an international affairs major I don’t know too much about American history… I took the online test to become a citizen and let me just say it is a good thing I am already living here. I need to make more of an effort to learn American history apparently. Although when I took the test I was also drinking so I’m going to go ahead and blame it on the wine.

If you haven’t visited Philly, I really encourage you to! It has such a great local culture, budding food scene and fascinating history.
