Philly Cross

On October 18, 2012, we went on the 9th Street Italian Market Tour.  Our guide was Bob.  Ivan and I were on the tour with two older people.

We went all around the Italian market.  Bob didn’t seem too much.  We got to try gelato at Anthony’s Gelato.  Ivan and I also tried a chocolate covered potato chip.

We stopped at Fante’s Kitchen Store and Di Bruno Bros. where we tried a nice cheese spread and parmesian reggiano with a balsamic vinegar.  I wouldn’t recommend this tour. 

The tour stopped near Geno’s and Pat’s which are THE places to get a Philly cheesesteak.

Ivan and I thought that I should try the original.  I had a Philly cheesesteak at Pat’s while Ivan had a crab cake sandwich.  The Philly cheesesteak tasted good.

Later, we did a wonderful Free and Friendly walking tour.  The guide Mike was very interesting.  We walked around City Hall and saw the organ at Macy’s.

There was a short break at the Reading Terminal Market. 

The group stopped at Friends Center which is run by the Quakers.

Our last stop on the tour was Love Park.

The water in the fountain was dyed blue for fallen police officers.  You should do this great tour. 

That night, we went to Hummus.  We each got a hummus, chickpea and avocado salad to go.

We ate our salad during the Alex Cross movie.  The movie was alright.

Tofu House

Ivan and I woke up on October 17, 2012 and had a good night’s sleep for once.  We had breakfast at the Airbnb house and then left.

We used the free wi-fi at McDonald’s.

Our next stop was the Visionary Arts Museum.

It was a small museum with art, some were good while others were ok. 

We had lunch at Mr. Rain’s Fun House.  Ivan and I each got the set menu.  We had potato and leek soup and an apple and walnut salad for a starter.  A veggie sandwich was our main course.  We got the desserts to go.

At 2:25 pm, we started driving towards Pennsylvania.  We passed through Delaware and arrived in Philadelphia at 4 pm.

We were staying with a place that we booked through Airbnb.  We met Gavin and his girlfriend Amanda.  Gavin created the house.  Our room was up uneven steep stairs.

Gavin recommended a restaurant nearby.  We had dinner at Honey’s Sit n Eat.  Ivan and I started off with vegetable latkes and a vegetable soup.  The latkes were good.  We each got a tofu noodle Asian salad which was huge.

Lil Dave went with the banana latkes and a chicken and banana wrap.
