Susan got out of the house last weekend and exposed herself to some art in Philadelphia. It was a last minute invitation extended by Susan's little sister and eldest niece when their original travelling companions dropped out. Susan doesn't harbor any insecurities about being second best so  she packed a bag, grabbed her daughter and ran out the door.

They started at The Rodin Museum:

                                    They went across the street to see a fantastic exhibit at the PMA:

                                After hours they sat on the grand staircase listening to Susan's most despised style of music, progressive jazz which was made tolerable through the magic of appetizers.

Their day ended with Indian food, which is truly Susan's idea of heaven.

The next morning everyone got up early and Susan discovered that her eldest niece becomes mouthy and unreasonable when she is hungry. While they waited for her to wrap up her morning routine they watched forty minutes of John Wayne, Sophia Loren and Rossano Brazzi travel through the Sahara desert.

Susan knows just what you're thinking and agrees; that is a crazy trio.

For breakfast they went to the Reading Terminal Market. Susan and her little sister dedicated part of their morning sniffing spices and teas before snagging some garam masala and smoked salt. 

The rest of the day was spent admiring the city:

                                                                                                               Eating lunch:

                            And supporting the Philly Aids Thrift Shop:

Before grabbing a bubble tea in Chinatown for the ride home.
Bye Philly, here's some big fake smiles!

I'm going to get mouthy and unreasonable if you don't send me that gorgeous coat.
