And of course - what trip to Philly would be complete without a shot of Ben Franklin's toilet?
Here's a shot of dad and I at the liberty bell. Funny how one simple gift that really stood for very little became such a symbol for so many things. The history of it's transformation into a national symbol is pretty interesting.
And of course - Independence Hall!! The place where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States were both drafted and signed. Most of the stuff is replica, but the big main chair at the front center is the same chair that Washington sat in while the Constitution was being framed and signed.
Once my dad dropped me off back at good ol’ Ft. Dix I packed the last of my bags and headed off to the airport. We arrived roughly 6 hours before our flight took off. Being that our flight didn’t leave till 4am you get the idea of how long our two days of travel was.
Here is a picture of what the pilot said was the area around London, so I’m guessing this is a suburb of some sort.
After a layover in Germany where I was at least able to jump on the net fast enough to text Natalie we got on the move for Kuwait where we arrived at about 4am. This final photo here is the start of my time “In Theater” as we call it. It was a fairly nice sunrise all things considered. At least it was only about 90 degrees by this time of the morning. Though you will notice the line of porta-potties to the left….some things just never change apparently. I can’t wait for another year in a location where porcelain toilets are a rare commodity.
