City of love
In West Philadelphia again, to see our friend R - this time to celebrate his official reception into the Jewish community at Kol Tzedek. We stayed again at the Gables, a Victorian B&B stuffed to the gills with antiques - though the cherry tree our front was so splendid we almost forgot to go in. The festivities were Friday night, joyful, inspiring.
Saturday, resplendently Springlike, we took a few hours to walk from West Phillie to the Barnes Foundation, which we viewed with R. Like our last trip, this one made us wonder why people put up with the stress of New York when the living's so good so close by... This is R, rising star.
