Go Phillies

October 29, 2009

It was super fun watching the first world series game in Philadelphia last night.  I have to say at this point that I’m a real Phillies fan–it’s way more legit fandom than in New York, where Yankee Stadium was so empty by the seventh inning.

I also fell in love with the city in general.  Maybe it’s just that all of the modernist architecture in Brazil is making the old brick buildings seem unbelievably charming, but the whole city seemed to glow red and yellow in the fall sunlight.  Running through the city, it’s impossible not to love the small BYO restaurants, and shops tucked into townhouses.  Scott and I ran down to the Art Museum, and every building seemed grander and more stately than anything we had seen in a while (save for the Casa Rosada, but in a different way.)  I know I fall in love with places easily, but Philly’s feeling pretty special right now.

Tomorrow we head to Israel and I’ll pick back up with the posting.
