The Philadelphia Museum of Art

And yes… there were people running up and down the steps for exercise a la Rocky. At 7:30 in the evening. During a light rain. While it was 37 degrees outside.

 

Over thirty flights were canceled the day I flew through Philadelphia. Mine happened to be one. In a slurry of rain, balmy temperatures, and roving crowds of angry stranded people, I had the best night I’ve had in a long time.

The airport is twenty minutes from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. While everyone toiled, hollered, cried and yelled because their sack of underwear and tee-shirts were going to the wrong airport. I got to enjoy Japanese tea houses, Gothic carvings, joyous docents, and the sensation of being in a world class collection of art after sun down.
