The City of Brother Love

Greetings from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! I'm here doing work for a logistics company that has its offices in the Naval Yard. It is interesting driving to work every morning past very large military warships mothballed in the yard. Oh, and as we pull into the parking lot there is a huge cruise ship parked right next door, as well.

My team and I are staying downtown at the Ritz-Carlton, and it is pretty nice. The bathroom even has an electric motor for the window blinds, so you can move them up and down using a switch by the door. I thought that was pretty cool. Another cool thing is the view from said window:

Yes, my camera phone takes lousy pictures, but you can get the idea. Supposedly the Liberty Bell is right by the hotel, as well, but I haven't seen it yet.

Did you make it to see the Liberty Bell? On our honeymoon we spent a day in Philly, and saw the LB and Independence Hall. It has a nice downtown historic area.

Did not make it to the Liberty Bell, too much time spent working and stressing out about the other work that wasn't being done because I was working on the first batch of work. It was pretty crazy, actually.
