I've been having a great time here in Philadelphia. Sorry to everyone I should have contacted but haven't. It is very expensive. I couldn't get through to Laura but managed to leave a message on Hannah's message bank. The 20 second message cost me nearly $20 so I've held off making another call. I hope Hannah passed on the message.
The weather here has been fantastic. The course has been great and I've learned some interesting stuff. I've met some fun people (including an Aussie living in the US). I haven't had much time for sight seeing but will be doing a bus-top tour of Philly this morning and I managed to see the Liberty Bell yesterday.
Since this internet access is costing me $7.50/15mins I'm going to end it here. I have 8 hours of sight seeing (and shopping for Laura) and 24 hours of flights left.
