Hi! they say, better late than never ^^ here I’m posting some of the pictures I took while my husband and I were visiting a friend in the east coast of the US back in november 2012. I took 2 girls this time, well, 2 and a half^^ hehe, 1 body and 2 heads to make it easier to carry. Sadly, we just got there together with Sandy hurricane…and the weather got pretty bad, so I didn’t get many pictures of the girls >_<.
The trip started in Philadelphia, we just got there 2 days before Sundy, but since everyone was getting ready, the city was quite empty :o. Even after Sandy the stores remained closed. In my country there are no alerts like this, and the atmosphere felt really different. Luckily for Philly citizens, Sandy didn’t hit very hard. Above a picture of the Independence Hall.
Rea-chan went with us that day, very urban style with Independence Hall’s walls in the back ^^. As an anecdote, at the security check to enter both the Liberty Bell museum and Independence Hall was really surprised to see Rea-chan coming out from the bag…all I could think was “don’t touch her face, don’t touch her faaaaceee”.
Me and Rea-chan at the Liberty Bell. Typical photo for all tourists :p I can remember hubby saying, ” You are not making me take a picture of you and the doll in from of all these people right??? lol , and ofc I did :p
Instagram/iDarkroom photo :)
We visited the University campuses, this is Drexel’s mascot known as “Mario the Magnificent” …Mario-chan? :p
A bit too big for Rea-chan, so I had to make a close up, hehe or else it would like “what is that little thing at the dragon’s feet” :p
At the Penn (University of Pensylvannia), if I remember correctly, there is this well know LOVE statue by Robert Indiana. The most known one can be found in the Center City. Beautiful campus btw :)
Rea peeking from her travel bag xD
This is a view of Philly from one of the highest towers in the Trade Center, we went to a restaurant there ^^
I forgot to take pictures of the food :o only took one of the dessert^^. Coming up a lot of picture of food! hehehe, better read this post after lunch :p
A tea and a chocolate cookie filled with marshmallow!
We couldn’t forget to visit Rocky! hehe
Gates of Hell, this door that depicts a scene from Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. Wikipedia link here. The detail is so amazing :o
The place is called Sabrina’s. Here in Spain we don’t have places like this, so for american’s must sound funny that I’m amazed at those dishes :p but here we have pretty simple sandwiches compared to yours!
Maya at home during the days we had to stay at home because of Saaaanddyyyyyy!!
I bought a while back this cute Korilakkuma phone bag that fits really well dollfie dream ^^
I found strawberry pocky in a chinese food sture in Philly’s ChinaTown :3! my fav!
Maya and her hypnotic eyes :3 Love her!
We bought everything needed to make pancakes at home, they turned out pretty good! :3 hehehe
We went to buy food to a Whole Foods supermarket, I love to “inspect” what supermarkets sell in different countries, there is always different things from your own country, so again, for americans this can be boring :p sowwy ^^
Outside there were a lot of different pumpkins with Halloween around the corner
hmmm! so many fresh fruit
Loved the colors of those peppers
Colorful and different types of salt
Kawaiii! this has definitely japanese influence xD
I love to see variety in food ^^
We also visited Washington DC, but as we went just for 2 days I dind’t pick any girl with me, so I’ll leave you with just few pictures I also uploaded on Instagram.
The 3rd visit was New York City! with difference my favorite xD, I will visit again for sure!
Maya in NY, this is from Highline park, I only took her out one day (>_<) I didn’t take as many photos as I expected and ended up just carrying her in the bag >_<
So famous spot from many movies^^
Alice in Wonderland statue. This one is for Uriko-chan ^^
Panoramic pictures of Times Square at Night! so Tokyo-like xD
We had dinner at the Time’s Square Buba Gump restaurant. This was some weird beer-lemon fanta combo xD.
Spaghetti with sea food
This is me in front of the Gates of the New Yorl Palace Hotel that appears in mainly in the 1st ans 2nd season of Gossip Girl tv series, sadly it was getting some renovations and the whole courtyard was covered.
We ate many times in China town, yum yum! These were a kind of tako-yaki balls but chinese ver.
Last stop was Boston.
Sam La Grasa, remember this name, you definitely must come to this sandwich restaurant. They make these delicious sandwiches, you can even customize them. I’ve never seen so much ham in a sandwich :oooo
Also a very well known restaurant which we also loved was The Cheesecake Factory, I would love to have one in Barcelona!
And I had a picture of a bananan cheesecake that I don’t seem to find on my phone now >_<
So that was it :) we had a great time! although I didn’t take out the girls as much as I expected.
Thanks for reading!
