Day 46 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Day 46 – 24th July 2005 -5:00 GMT

Phildelphia is a wonderful city and nothing like I expected. It has rows of quaint houses and there are loads trees all around the city, you also find fountains around every corner.

We started this morning by going to see Independence Hall

Then we visited The Liberty Bell, The Liberty Bell was originally called The State Bell and was made in Whitechapel, England to mark the end of the revolution in the US. After that it was renamed the Liberty Bell and was a symbol of human rights, it inspired the americans during the abolition of slave labour and during womens rights.

Ok so what day were you both here? I didn't see dates. I just moved here this week on Thurs. It would have been great to see you but it seems as if you've buggered off already.
