Philadelphia : From riches to rags...

Been having a fab time in Philadelphia: the buildings, the history, the Brit bashing, the beer, the boys, the views, the Liberty Bell, the idolatry of all things Benjamin Franklin, the declarations, the constitutions, the U.S. mint, the Reading Terminal Market, the Italian Market Fedtival, the dancing in the streets, tye LOVE sign, the Christ Church, the poverty, the pan handlers, the decaying industrial waste land, the wretchedness, the people on $14,000 a year, the murders, the dispossessed... America's original political capital city. The Athens of the West. Reduced to its poverty capital. A hell of a fascinating a place to visit. 
And great cheesesteaks.
