We didn't get off to a very good start when there was a mix-up with our room but the problem was solved in pretty short order. We were given a nice greeting by management but when we went to happy hour in the bar, we could not use credit cards. That was a first on this trip! The room had weird lamps, a strong odor of air freshener and the bed was not that comfortable. Also there was no grab bar in the shower and the toilet ran on and on. Wifi was complimentary but weak. On the up side the hotel was in walking distance of Denny's, where we ate dinner and breakfast, and there was a complimentary shuttle to the airport.

I want to be a part of it

Top of the heap."

Gave our train passes to a young couple in the hotel. We had checked out who was there at breakfast and they were all familiar faces. We saw this couple when we came back from our walk and they had only arrived last night. They seemed to be quite pleased to be given free subway tickets.
... starting with my trip to Miami. Sure my past recent visits to the Golden State may have prompted this move, planted the seed if you will. It has never felt as quite the right time to do so until now. I feel really good about life right now. My emotional aspect is high on the reality of leaving 'home'. Philadelphia, the place that has made me, me. The area I've spent my entirety of living, will soon be in the rearview mirror indefinitely. No more winter ...
... of catching them if they bolted. In fact the secret to getting someone to take your pic is to ask a tourist to do it. You can spot them very easily since they generally are all taking pics or they are just really friendly, unlike the majority of Americans this side of Mississippi. I then needed to use the rest room so went inside the beautifully warm Museum of Modern Art. Unlike Washington DC, here you have to pay admission fee. So I spoke nicely to the lady ...
