Fun in Philly

I went to Philadelphia a few weeks ago and stayed downtown. It was my first time there and I found the downtown area a charming place with lots of shopping, including neat boutiques. My trip was short, so I didn't have a chance to discover other wonderful places, but my favorite stop was Reading Terminal Market. Its a great food market filled with a fantastic array of foods & crafts. The baked goods and chocolate were especially tempting but you can also find fresh meats, seafood, produce, and many more wonderful items.

I started my visit with a fresh cup of coffee from Old City Coffee. I am a coffee fanatic and enjoy trying different coffees from the neat places that I find when I travel. After walking around for a bit, I worked up the appetite for lunch and enjoyed a fabulous vegetarian po boy (eggplant, spinach & fresh mozzarella) from Beck's Cajun Cafe with a side of fried macaroni & cheese. I am so embarrassed - I was enjoying my meal so much, I forgot to take a photograph before diving in, so all you get is a half eaten meal!
