Love in the City of Love

October 24, 2007

Just came back from a LOVELY visit to Philadelphia.  We had a great time.

I fell in love with LaScala at 7th & Chestnut.   Four stars on a four star scale!   Casual but upscale atmosphere & ambience, wonderful food, fabulous service!   I highly recommend.  (Italian…)

I think it interesting that no matter how much time you have to pre-plan, you can’t know what you really want to do and see until it unfolds before you.    

In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.

Plans are nothing; planning is everything.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

I referenced the above quote while waiting for the elevator of the hotel after I don’t know how many times we exchanged, “what do you want to do now?  I don’t care.  What do YOU want to do now…”   When my husband chimed in with his little ditty, “Planning is a must;  the plan not so much.”  

Sometimes, I really get bored and frustrated traveling because I want to do so much!   and spend too much time deciding.    I didn’t take as many photos this trip but I do love – –  I have much MUCH super much appreciation for the old ornate buildings…
