Getting lost in time

Coming off a reunion with my schoolmates in Atlantic City, we literally got lost going to the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia and precious time was spent trying to negotiate the side streets. Good news is we were able to reach the place with still thirty minutes of sun left. Bad news is that the park is all but closed already. Oh well, I'll just enjoy having my photos taken with my classmates whom I have not seen for more than three decades. It is indeed a trip back into time.

Ring my Bell

As if enclosing it in a glass structure is not enough, there is also a steel gate before you can get a better view of the Liberty Bell. Unfortunately, it was closed already and I just have to content myself having my picture taken from outside. I read that the bell cracked the very first time it was rung. Probably the reason why they put so many barriers now. No ringing please...

We, the graduates of UE Batch 80

Just two of us in this picture. The other one is taking the photo. :) Let's hope we won't be meeting in another three decades.
