Rima came to visit from Cali.  Naturally, this warranted another road trip to Philly.

marsOne caught some quick prayer action in an alleyway on South St in Philly.  There happened to be some pretty fresh Philly handstyle up on the wall.  This is one of my favorite shots.

Mariam was pretty happy to see all this random mural we passed by in the city.  Even though it was still unfinished, she was like ecstatic.

Mariam points out feautures in the mural to everyone else.  The art basically covered the entire wall of an elementary school in West Philly.

Once we got back, we hit up Ben’s Chili Bowl in DC.  Apparently, this is Bill Cosby’s favorite spot in DC, they got his name and picture like everywhere inside.
