 There's just something about cities. The energy, the people, the stories... Ah, I love it. Before Christmas, I went to visit my roommate and other friends from Rome in Philadelphia. What a cool place. My friends live in the city. I'm talking skyscrapers outside the front door, on the subway line... It's awesome. They were awesome hosts and I think enjoyed being tourists in their own city. I certainly loved seeing them after seven months!

We took trains everyone, explored Old City, South Street and hit all the big tourist spots. As a big fan of America, I freaked out a bit at the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall but the food, art and time spent exploring with friends was incredible.
