Road Trip - Philadelphia

Independence Hall after closing time.

Kathryn and I spent Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend in beautiful Philadelphia. The trip was motivated by the US National Team send off game against Turkey. Kathryn was nice enough to enjoy two soccer games in less than a one week span. For club and for country!

In the cheap seats!

Corner kick in the first half. I should mention that Kathryn is officially better than me at taking pictures.

Even the protesters are more intimidating in Philadelphia. Plus, what are these dudes wearing?

We were lucky to meet up with our DC friends Jim and Kristin who showed us around South Street. We took in some German grub and beer. Sadly, I couldn't find a German beer that tastes like Pabst or Miller Light.

Enjoying a gyro and birch beer at Reading Terminal Market.

We also used the trip as an excuse to visit the nation's oldest zoo.

This dude was our favorite animal at the Philly Zoo.

We couldn't leave town without trying a Philly cheese steak. This is the "wiz wit" from the iconic Pat's King of Steaks. We made it all the way to Delaware before my stomach ache set in.
