Luis in the USA, Part IV (Philadelphia and Food Firsts)


After two days in D.C., we were so ready for a chill day.  We didn’t get home til pretty late on Tuesday, so we woke up late on Wednesday, had pancakes with my dad, went for a run around the neighborhood, and then got dressed and braved the subway into town. IMG_2658 IMG_2669 IMG_2677 IMG_2697

I absolutely LOVE all the colorful murals downtown!  Never noticed them before, but they’re great.

We walked all along South Street, Luis was introduced to the wonders of Whole Foods, and then we headed over to Spruce Street Harbor Park.IMG_2701  

Sometimes it’s so fun to be a tourist in your own city!

Since I don’t have many photos to share for this day, I thought I would share a few of the ‘food firsts’ that Luis got to experience here in the US.
