Day-trip in Philadelphia

On Memorial Day, I had a chance to finally get out of New York city, yes after more than a year, it was time! I followed my friends out of the state, took the bus at 7 in the morning in Chinatown NY and arrived one hour and a half later in Chinatown Philadelphia.

We went there without any expectations. The idea was just a day off somewhere else.

We skipped the historical district, we just had a look at the Liberty Bell, passed a few Memorial Day ceremonies, then got lost in the downtown area, had a HUGE and excellent Philly Cheesesteak, tried the subway, just for fun, and finished our trip with the famous stairs you can see in the movie Rocky.

I’m not going into details, here’s a slideshow with things that inspired me that day.

    Sympa ce petit diaporama !
    Certaines fresques sont assez impressionnantes !

    Et la statue de Rocky, ça me donne envie de me mettre ‘Eye of the Tiger’ ^^

    Pas de photo du cheesesteack, dommage ;)

    Bonsoir. Je suis tombé sur ton blog plutôt par hasard car je fais des recherches afin de… devenir graphiste aux USA! Tout un programme. je me permets de te contacter pour un savoir un peu plus, notamment sur la difficulté à trouver un job… et tout ce que tu trouves utile à dire. J’ai 23, suis actuellement en stage dans une petite boite à Paris et comble de l’ironie, je suis un passionné de musique indé (un peu comme toi visiblement!) Tu peux me répondre sur le mail qui se trouve avec mon message si tu le souhaites.
    Bonne soirée!
