The Family Pict headed into Philadelphia for the day on Saturday. As I waited for the train to arrive, I realised that this actually marked my first time on a train in America. I have been to the US half a dozen times before moving here, but I have never once been on an overland train before (just the Washington DC and New York subways). So obviously I had to take a photo to mark the occasion:
And here are the rest of the Pict family on the platform:
I don’t have any incisive comment to pass on the train journey other than the fact it struck me that the carriage was much more clean and comfortable than most city trains I have travelled on. It was just a train. But it was my first one so yay anyway.
As for the trip into the city, let’s just gloss over that. Three little words: Tag; team; tantrums. But here are some favourite photos from the first trip the boys and I made into Philly.
