30th June 2005: Philadelphia

Decided to head to Philadelphia on the Thurs to check out how things are set up in plenty of time for Sat - I arrived at my hotel at around 2pm so had an afternoon to wander ... so I did ;)

Oh and OMG Philadelphia taxi drivers, they apparently can only drive above the speed limit, weaving in and out of lanes, wizzing down back alleys for short cuts and tooting their horn if anyone stops for a second - scary but quite good fun actually ... ;p
Philadelphia hotel Philadelphia hotel Philadelphia hotel Philadelphia hotel  My suit in Philadelphia, very big ;)  Was fab to have the bedroom at the back though cause it means you didn't hear the cleaners and people messing about in the corridor - always a plus ;)
