A day in the area of Philadephia

Today I did some touring and seeing of sights. This morning it was off to Valley Forge, bright and early. I enjoyed especially the statue of Gen. von Steuben, the Prussian, overlooking the grounds where the first organized Army was trained and drilled.

There is a lovely Episcopalian chapel on the grounds, well worth visiting. The glass in the chapel depictes the life of George Washington, inter alia. Here is a detail from the glass of the General in prayer.

Then we zoomed down to Philadelphia to the historic city center and visited many places including Independence Hall.

And finally, we had to have a bit to eat. And since I very much enjoy speaking ENGLISH in the USA, we went to Geno’s for a proper Philly Steak.

It was a perfect day, with sunshine and low humidity.
