It's OK to go full tourist sometimes, right?
We visited my cousin Paula and her awesome friends for thanksgiving, just outside of Philadelphia. It was a surprisingly painless drive through Manhattan to take the road down there for all the food!
Thankfully we missed the black Friday crazy and took a walk around Philadelphia. An uber driver told us "this is south Philadelphia, where I was born and raised."
Learned how to order a cheese steak which is probably a significant life skill.
After thanksgiving we drove from Philly to DC for a quick overnight. We arrived towards the end of daylight so I had us pretty much jogging from Dupont Circle to Pennsylvania Avenue.
It looked like the removal vans were in. Sad to think what will b become of the place.
Walked the mall as the sun set to appreciate some of the history around the city and country.
I really enjoyed DC. Hopefully it holds strong over the next few years.
