Another detail from the Philadelphia Magic Gardens, which are a giant museum of outsider art, with every flat surface of an old building mosaic'ed, often with pieces of mirror. It's a fun spot and worth a moment if you're ever in Philadelphia. On the flip side -- cheesesteak sandwiches are pretty much not worth it. Sorry.

Of Philadelphia

Your intrepid correspondents, stuck for the most part in the U.S. this year, have done their able best to explore everything within reasonable driving distance that we haven't seen on previous spins through Washington/Arlington. In November, we made a weekend trip to Philadelphia, a thoroughly enjoyable city that we had only ever visited previously for exactly 24 hours due to problems with connecting flights to Europe. Philly is a swell town, but somehow other than pictures involving a baby in front of some famous landmark, we only managed to take pictures at the Philadelphia Magic Gardens, pictured above. More soon.

Watch this space...

We think maybe we're going to get it together to post some more stuff here.  I don't know how.  We've been pretty busy learning Portuguese and keeping a baby alive.  This will under no circumstances turn into a blog where we post stories about our family.  But a lot of our photographic efforts have gone into pictures prominently featuring a baby, lately, and so we've had an inadvertent pause.  But we've been doing this thing too long to just let it die out of inattention now, so we're going to try to get some more travel photos up here soon for whatever modest audience we ever had -- hopefully enough to fill the gap until we can start sharing photos from Brazil sometime in January!
