    After the game, I made my way back over to the Subway with half the arena. There were a couple of trains waiting in the station, which was the end of the line, and they soon filled up.

Somewhat farther south near the Delaware River is another NPS unit, Gloria Dei Olde Swede’s Church, the first Swedish Lutheran church in America dating from colonial times. Although a National Park unit, it still functions a working church but is part of a different Protestant denomination that has no connection to its ...

    Life is crazy.
    Yup, that about sums it up!

    But really, we didn't have a specific neighborhood to work in this week, so we jumped around a lot. The team was introduced to an unfamiliar organization called Rebuilding Together. Apparently they have a presence in other cities as well, given that fellow corps members from different teams also came back later at transition with t-shirts bearing the same name. From what I gathered (and feel free to actually look ...
