Road Trip: Philadelphia
A while back I needed a little space from Kripalu, and on a whim, my friend Slefy and I went to Philly to visit a friend who had been a volunteer and moved back home for the summer.
As soon as we were on the road, I felt a weight lift. Being at Kripalu and engaging in self-study is wonderful, but it can get a little heavy at times. Enter: the road trip.
We went all over as our tour guides (Jessie & Avi) showed us their city.
We went downtown and saw city hall and love park
hung out and read poetry at hipster coffeeshop Café Olé
visited Reading Terminal Market (and did a little first aid in the middle of it)
and viewed the city from Avi's rooftop terrace
Overall, a refreshing trip to a cool city. Success!
