Hi Womball, :slight_smile:

I was only in Philly for two days, but it’s a great city! I was lucky in that the weather was so perfect ~ definitely check out the museum, it’s small, but apparently the largest collection of Rodin’s works outside of Paris!

I also definitely recommend checking out the Wyeth retrospective, which is quite literally right down the street as you probably know at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It was a great show, though I was disappointed by the fact that none (save one small portrait) of the Helga pictures were included in the exhibit. Apparently, the entire collection of them, which were painted in secret over the course of 15 years, is in negotiation for sale to a single collector. Even so, the show was really well put together and definitely worth seeing. I wish that I could have spent more time in the rest of the museum, as it was huge and there’s a lot of great stuff there!

Philly was also not short on really good food. In front of the Eastern State Penitentiary is row of really good restaurants, which is how we ended up discovering the Eastern State Penitentiary. :smiley: Jack’s is a converted firehouse restaurant, it was really good, as well as a seafood / jazz restaurant about two or three doors down. But I digress. :smiley:

Cheers, :slight_smile:
