Philadelphia: A Day Trip!

Liberty Bell

Philadelphia..
It was a very small day trip! Not even a day trip, just 3-4 hours in the city. Reached Philly at 3pm and left by 7 pm. Most of museums close by 5pm. Could not make it even to the Rodin Museum, which I would have loved to see. Only took photos of "The Thinker", from the fence. Most of the images here are taken from the bus. Some walking. All in a great hurry!
