I am currently in Philadelphia on the first leg of a round-the-world tour, so there will continue to be light posting over the next few weeks. I will be in Philadelphia, London, Bangalore/Chennai/etc, and LA.
I had not spent much time in Philadelphia before, though I am now moving here (!). Being from the West Coast, I was somehow unaware that Philadelphia is the second largest city on the East Coast. Philadelphia is the home to the first medical school in the US, at the University of Pennsylvania in 1765. Interestingly, it is also home to an olfactory institute (The Monell Chemical Senses Center).
