If this doesn't sum up the US what does?? Flipping through some of the channels on the TV at my Philly hotel, and the 3 consecutive channels were MTV's "16 and Pregnant", CNN has their headline of the day as "Kate Gosselin of Jon & Kate plus 8 fighting back after husband is trying to trash her publicly and wants sole custody of all 8 kids and even the 'educational' Travel Network had a show on how this place serves burgers drowned and cooked in a pool of oil and apparently customers order the double decker burger with over 1500 calories and 200 grams of fat.
People always say, to find out about a culture or city when travelling, walk around, people watch and flip through the TV channels. Well, I walked around and observed fast food place after fast food place, Philly Cheese Steak specialty and flipping through 3 channels, I have realized that the words "Yes we Can" means yes we can be pretty fat and obese and pretty trashy!!! "Yes we can!!". Lololol
All kidding aside, Philly looks like a pretty interesting city and a lot of history.
Did get a chance to walk around a bit, and really liked the old parts of Philadelphia. Plus, the city is made even nicer with all the art and statues around the city.
Now let me go eat a Philly Cheese Steak and get a heart attack and spend $125,000 USD at the near by hospital. :)
