While travelling, anecdotes to remember always happen. Today I tell you 5 weird things that happened to us in Philadelphia.

1- Advertising in the bathroom

“Share the story, not the germs” mentioned this notice in a women’s bathroom in one of the historical museums we visited. Rare advertising… It got my attention I don’t know if for good or bad. I still can’t decide.

2– Jesus on break

A man dressed like Jesus waiting for his coffee. What? I clarify that this was between November 11 and 12, they were not representing Easter or anything like that. Just in case!

3- Protest and limousine

This shot seems to me quite peculiar. The limousine parked while passing a demonstration next to it. Another strange thing is that the police accompanied / guarded those who participated in the protest to avoid conflicts. Yes, you read well! And there were almost as many policemen as protesters. (This is really different in Argentina, my home country.)

4- Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens

Attraction of the city that I loved it. Mr. Boyfriend thought it was a lot of garbage collected and made art. It is a very rare walk.

5- Rocky Staircase

Like the pose next to the Rocky statue, visitors to Philadelphia recreate the movie by climbing the steps of the museum. In the time we were there we saw people filming another from below, from above. On the other hand, other people ran while filming or running in a group. Of course there are local people who actually use the stairs to exercise. In my case I was satisfy already with the photo imitating the statue of Rocky. Don’t expect that I will run extra miles on holidays.

Bonus track

In Fairmount park there were flags from many countries. Obviously, the Argentine flag came out. I was tearing my tears…
