      If you are backpacking around and are thinking of staying here, don't unless you have a car. The bus takes approx 50 mins one way to get from the city to the closest stop and that is without the wait for the unreliable, infrequent bus and then the walk to hostel. The hostel itself is fine if you keep in mind that it is an old house. Power points are infrequent, wifi only really available in the lounge area, the beds are narrow and the showers don't have any water pressure. The up side is that you do meet a lot of people as everyone is forced into the lounge for the wifi and the hostel hosts are pretty good at getting everyone chatting. I would only stay here again if everything else was booked out and I really wanted to go to Philly.

We saw lots of cornfields looking very dry & wondering if it's for animal feed or biofuel but couldn't find out!! Here's a photo of part of the drive that day - I forgot to take one along the narrow roads, to busy admiring the views!

      We decided to drive the car into Philadelphia but after 20 minutes ...

      Since it was our last full day in Philly we decides to just get up early and make the most of it, and what a beautiful day we got doe it! Slapped on the suncream and shorts off out we went. First stop was reading terminal market - a huge indoor food market which I was incredibly excited for as you can all imagine! Was dying to try a proper Philly cheesesteak & a pretzel! When we arrived we went up and down ...

      ... Then we had just enough time to hit the Vino Volo wine bar for a quick glass of Spanish Tempranillo (Janet had a New Zealand Savignon Blanc) and a chicken salad before our flight to Brussels. We boarded our 767 and settled in for the 7 hour flight across the Atlantic and some sleep.

      ... that they built a statue of Sly at the bottom of the famous steps for tourists, and what looked like locals to take countless pictures with.

      Then there are the steps, there's the tourists (like me) who followed in Rocky's footsteps and did the run up the steps for fun on camera and then there are the dedicated runners who I'm not sure if they do it daily and want to be like Rocky? Or ...
