I got off to a slow start because I had to take care of a few things at home, so I didn't get up to Philadelphia soon enough to catch the Liberty Bell. Apparently they close it at 5:00.
I did, however get this shot looking at the top of the old City Hall building. I talked to some of the people with a local TV news crew who were also taking shots around town.
Since I couldn't get pictures of the Liberty Bell yet I went out to my friends' home in New Jersey before they went to bed. I'll head back and get some shots of the elusive Liberty Bell.
However, go to the next page and see my sunset from New Jersey.

Back in Philadelphia, I got lots of pictures of the area, people, and yes, finally the Liberty Bell.
Here's a few more pictures of City Hall and some friendly gentleman that was just dying to have his picture taken.
At the Liberty Bell exhibit I was a little nervous. I had to leave my bike and many valuables out in the open. However, I really like Philadelphia's parking rules for motorcycles. It seems like anything is fair game. I saw most bikes parked on sidewalks. So I kind of did the same. Believe it or not, the bike was still there when I returned, with everything intact.
I really enjoyed watching the looks on the children's faces as they seemed fascinated with what was being said. I'm not going to go into any detail here about the Liberty Bell myself. That's all written in our history books and on the internet for us all to read. Please check it out and learn more about our country.
Right there next to the building that is housing the Bell is Independence Hall. That's right, the very same building that the Declaration of Independence was signed. Its definitely a fascinating feeling to walk around in the same places where it all began.
Lastly, here's a picture of one of the many horses used in the carriage rides around the city.
Enjoy and have a great day.
Look for me in New York City next.
