We have been back for almost a week now but this is the first chance I have had to actually talk about our trip…oh, how I love 400 emails in my work inbox.
The conference was way good. While I conferenced, Eleanor and Telfer had major brother-sister bonding time. She came down to Philly and then Telfer went back to New York to spend a day with her. After the conference we explored Philadelphia, mostly on foot. Telfer has some impressive (read: disgusting) blisters on the bottom of his feet. I missed Henry of course and threw myself on a passing Westie who kindly obliged and gave me lots of nice kisses.
This is what we did in Philadelphia: ate Cheese Steak sandwiches (of course), bought cookies and sticky buns in the Reading Terminal Market, visited the Rosenbach Museum and Library, the Phildelphia Art Museum (Telfer and Eleanor), the Rodin Museum, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and Elfreth’s Alley. Whew. We went to lunch here and here and bought lots of books here.
