Doing a little east coast fling

Posted in Uncategorized by trishbendix on March 26, 2008

On our last day in the city, we conquered the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. First, we took photos with the Rocky statue, and then we did the triumphant jog up the steps with “Eye of the Tiger” in our minds. Then we stood in his place and surveyed the city and the massive museum from the top.

We took a long walk down around the river into West Philadelphia into University City. Thanks to Yelp, I had discovered a magazine shop that I had to visit while in town. Avril 50 houses dozens  international publications and coffees, so I fell in love, buying a few heavy issues I can’t find easily in Chicago, and a copy of the new Missbehave which has Jamie’s interview with fashion designer Peggy Noland.

A few more stops at shops and we were back to McKenna’s for the last time before departure. I snapped some shots of her place, gave her a hug, and were soon in our cab to the airport just as quickly as we’d come in.
