Francisco and Mama Leopard and Baby Leopard and I embarked on an adventure this week: we bought all day passes for Philadelphia transportation and proceeded to ride all the public transportation from morning till night.
We rode regional rail, the bus, the el, the old trolley from the 50s, the newer trolley, and the Norristown high speed line (which was a little slow).
We began with a visit to Glen Ford, an old house on the Delaware River in northeast Philadelphia.
There were lovely rose gardens (and look at that bird hotel on top of the garden building).
The trip was great--it involved our favorite coffee shop in Northern Liberties, pho in Kensington near Ilana's work, and some impromptu shopping, but we petered out before making it to Norristown for tacos.
