Lunch at Jacks firehouse just outside the Eastern States Penitentiary. 

I didn’t know that penitentiary were named that because the residents were supposed to be penitent.

There’s something that I’d like to say but I can’t find the “carefully nuanced enough for Tumblr” way to say it, so I just gave up.

I don’t get distances here.

We left Harrisburg and drove a meandering 80 minutes to Bethlehem. From there we drove a meandering 68 minutes. On the way to Bethlehem road signs said “130 miles to New York City”

I’m a Midwest kid who has lived in the west for half my life. If you left Denver, and drove any of those aforementioned distances, you’d be nowhere. Cripes, if you left Denver and drove all three of those distances you’d just be further out in the middle of nowhere.

East coast has some space-time bending time lords or something.

And don’t even try to explain crossing the Delaware river to get to New Jersey. It took me long enough to get crossing the Missouri River to get into Iowa.

Philadelphia vacation. Christ it’s humid.
