touring philly

Posted on March 28, 2007


We took the PATCO commuter train into Philadelphia yesterday, a day I spent much too much time on my feet. We walked around Society Hill and for lunch had veggie cheesesteaks made out of the same stuff as the veggie shwarma that we had the previous evening at a middle eastern restaurant in Cherry Hill, NJ. We also had a slice of pumpkin bread. We walked around downtown philly and visited the Rodin Museum (don’t bother if you’ve already seen the Rodins at the Brooklyn Museum of Art or the Metropolitan Museum of Art in nyc) and Philadelphia Museum of the Arts which has a fine permanent collection and featured an exhibit of a local artist, Tom Chimes as well as an exhibit of contemporary works on paper. We had dinner at Bocca, a family style Italian restaurant where we had Salmon with bowtie pasta in a lemony dill pesto. The train ride back took 20 minutes.
