It’s been two and half days since I moved to Philadelphia, US. Only a single day now remains, before a new chapter in life begins – an MBA program at Wharton. My first few days have gone in shopping for furniture at IKEA and assembling it. I thought it would be extremely hard but it turned out to be quite a lot of fun! 🙂
As the anxiety and excitement builds up, I finally got the time today to go out into the city and explore a little bit. I was confused between simply “looking” and taking photographs but ended up taking some shots anyway, while taking mental notes for what to capture later 😀
The thing which has struck me the most about Philly the most so far is how this city has so much history visible all around. There are beautiful, old buildings sprinkled all over, lending a lovely mood to the city.
There are houses, shops and restaurants located in many of these buildings. It looks quite wonderful.
Of course there are some of the more modern looking cafes such as this. I’ve always been a fan of street side cafes, if only the Indian weather could allow them:(
I saw a lot of places that offered to do psychic readings or tarot readings or some astrological stuff. That was interesting!
A different way of attracting customers, this. I’m sure it works! 🙂
Another street side cafe –
Wonderful music played by street musicians lends a very romantic mood to the city.
