Week One Plans turned into action and before I knew it Monday was upon us and we headed into Philadelphia to start my life as a tourist! First crack of the whip had us at the liberty bell. Speaking of cracks someone put one in that big beautiful bell. The liberty hall is amazing. To be a fly on the wall thru the centuries. The detail in the structures is incredible.

(Nonetheless - note to America: if I have to hear your national anthem hollered one more time, I shall actually scream...)
And that brings us up to date. I'm actually now in Washington DC, and this evening I managed a sneaky look around town. It's fantastic. Monumental is the word. I look forward to continuing my exploration of this fantastic - and impossible, and absurd - nation, in the weeks to ...
