A Trip to Chinatown in Philadelphia - A Photo Story

October 09, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I took the family on a quick trip to Philadelphia this past Monday to bring my son home from Drexel for the long, Columbus Day Weekend.

My daughter is obsessed with all things "Kawaii", or (in the context of Japanese culture) cute, so we decided to spend a few hours in Philadelphia's Chinatown.

Here's some of what we saw while we were there.
