Some Philadelphia neighborhood sights


Today was rainy after noon, so Eileen and I mostly stayed inside.

However, we made a short excursion in the morning to check out vegan-friendly grocery Essene Market, and vegan doughnut shop Dottie’s Donuts, both of which were within easy walking distance. This allowed Eileen to give me a brief walking tour of the neighborhood, which was really cool.

Historic sites (such as the oldest hospital in the country, founded before the revolution) mingled with murals, locally owned shops, hidden gardens, streamline moderne architecture, mosaic-tiled building facades and alleyways, and other classic-styled old buildings, one of which even housed a condom shop. (I believe the last time I saw one of those was in 1996, in Freiburg, Germany.)

We got back indoors before the rain began, and enjoyed our spinach lasagna and doughnuts before chatting and lounging most of the rest of the day.

Tomorrow is to be rain free, so I plan to visit the Japanese garden with Eileen, and then perhaps explore some more vegan restaurants and/or bike paths. There is so much to do here, and I don’t have much rain-free time to do it!
