I just arrived in Philadelphia via train. This part of the country sure is a lot older than the west coast, which makes me miss Europe a bit. Then again, China is a lot older than Europe, and I don't miss that place at all. Of course, with the exception of those hotel room slippers. Today was also my last day in New York City. On that note, there's nothing more inconvenient than losing your credit card on a business trip in America's biggest city. There's always a first for everything, and I continue to choose the worst possible moments for mine.
