The Fourth Of July

Independence Day in Philadelphia was massive.

The parades, the concert, the fireworks, the whole city, literally gathered in one area, in front of the Philly Art Museum. (Random note: The stairs for the Philadelphia Art Museum were used in the film "Rocky", where Sylvester Stallone had to run up before training for the big fight)

It could have been a better day if Germany beat Italy though. Charles and I were at a pub to watch the Germany-Italy semi-final with Gregor, our new German friend, along with Scott, Jim, and Rich whom are also staying at the Chamounix Mansion with us. They're from the UK. We decided we'd support Germany, firstly, since Gregor is German, and secondly, since the English hate Italians (and the French too, but that's another story).

Now I owe someone a meal. Better dig up some recipes eh? =p
