Philadelphia and bloody Benjiman Franklin

A travel blog entry by alwaysastory on Jun 20, 2015

... We saw the oldest church in America, the graveyard where Benjamin Franklin was buried. (He signed the constitution and was possibly a president) we saw his house, then we decided, you know what, we don't actually care about him to be honest. So we carried on, saw the first Bank of America and then the second Bank of America, the first post office etc. then it went to the first reconstructed bank. At this point I felt myself yawning. So we went for lunch. We went to the ...

By the way, the cab fare for Jusuf was $122.50, and we tipped him a hundred bucks. Just sorry we didn't think to take his picture. He was an absolute gem - - no one else would have gone out of their way for us simply for the promise of a larger fare.

He came down from work and picked me up outside the Customs House. We talked and he asked what times my trains were. I had a 1:35 or 3:45 option but would not make the 1:35 with lunch. He offered to just drop me at the 30th Street Station so I could get home earlier. I took the offer and headed ...
