Independence Hall

Thanks to a frequent flyers award  ticket that was burning my pocket,  I am  now enjoying and exploring the historic city of Philadelphia.  Upon arrival, I wasted no time setting out to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution were written.  The very chair where John Hancock and George Washington sat, is still there today.  It is awe inspiring.

Among other sights,  I also saw Christ Church where Benjamin Franklin  and, later, George Washington worshipped and the First Bank.

The Liberty Bell – the unpopular side  you never see that’s not cracked.
