The Glitz and Glamour of Philly

Being that this was my first time in Philadelphia, I had expected to be wowed by the Liberty Bell, awed by the world famous art museum, and enchanted by the colorful culture. While I certainly enjoyed all of these things, and more, one of my favorite things was the food court in the Gallery, a multi-block long mall, that held such shops as Old Navy and a two-floored Burlington Coat Factory. This picture doesn’t even begin to give it justice, but let me tell you, it was truly magnificent. The seemingly endless rows of neon, broken up by food related nouns in poppy colors, was mesmerizing.

Somewhere on Route 40, AKA the longest series of strip malls and inspirational billboards I’ve ever encountered, stood this terribly sad looking, but wonderfully colorful, defunct ferris wheel. There were no seats, and seemed like it belonged in a haunted county fair.
