Today once again, I was lucky to be able to sleep in until 8 AM. I’ve gotten to catch up on my sleep and I don’t feel jet lagged anymore which is a huge improvement because I can fully enjoy my days now. At around 9:30 AM my floor mates, RC and I left to go get a tour of the part of Philly we can be in. It goes through a lot of food shops as well as some interesting bookstores like The Last Word bookstore That I have to go check out. The tour was relatively short since Jenna and Rife only showed us the boundaries and not everything inside the lines.

Amber, Therese and I decided to go to Shake Shack but we forgot to check if it was going to be open so when we got there, lo and behold, it was closed! Our hunger however did not close shop and leave to celebrate the 4th of July so we went to Cosi. A restaurant that is in a way a cross between Chipotle and Panera Bread (not a very good one at that). When we got there we had to wait for a pretty long time for them to take our order and there wasn’t even a line of people. The food itself wasn’t completely horrible but it was bland to me. After that very unpleasant situation, we went to get gelato at Capogiro that was a few blocks away. I got the Champagne Mango and Banana flavors which were amazing. We kept chatting and having fun until it was time to leave.
