“The City of Brotherly Love” Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Bonjour beautiful world!

In the beginning of November we visited Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “The City of Brotherly Love”, a nickname from the literal meaning of the city’s name in Greek and also called as “The Birthplace of America” derived from Philadelphia’s role in the American Revolution and location of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia or Philly 🙂 touched my heart! The city is amazing! I am putting some links bellow with more information about Philadelphia history and so on.
