What a week! Nice to head south especially when it is snowing. Our art adventure began with a visit to family in New Jersey, didn't take enough photos. We will try to be better about that! Global Citizen planned an amazing event with hundreds of volunteer opportunities for children and adults at the MLK National Day of Service. The people of Philadelphia shared their ideas about racism, gun control, empowerment and most of all love. We were interviewed by the Philadelphia Inquirer, but our quotes did not make the paper. We both caught a bug and were really dragging by the end of the day, but warmed by the what people shared.
We toured Philadelphia on Tuesday, saw the room where democracy began and my favorite symbol of freedom, The Liberty Bell. Enjoyed some shenanigans with statues, then headed to our next adventure, staying at a working Amish farm. The Stoltzfus family warmlly welcomed us, although they were surprised that two women would head out on a trip of this sort. No men? Next stop Baltimore.
