Travel journal USA 2016 - Part 2 - Pennsylvania

Phil Williams' Permaculture farm

Welcome to Part 2 of my travel journal through the East Cost of the US in March 2016! This post will be all about Pennsylvania.

 

We stayed at a collagues place for a week in Chester County but boy did we get to see Pennsylvania! We took day trips almost every day and even an overnight trip to Huntingdon which is in the middle area of Pennsylvania! I can't possibly show all the pictures of the places we saw, so here are some highlights!

Travel journal USA 2016 - Part 1 - New York State

Ophelia the therapy chicken

This March me and hubby Nick went to the US to see some friends and biogas colleagues (hmm, I must make a whole different post about that) and to generally have a good time and see new places after a long travel break. We were in the US for nearly 3 weeks and we passed seven states in total (though really staying in three of them). This is my travel journal which I will split in separate posts, because I don't want to flood you with pictures!

 

Part 1 is New York State and NYC.

Culture overload!

Opera visitors

Last fall we got a 5-show-ticket to the local opera house Aalto-Theater. We'd only been to the opera once or twice before, but we decided to give it a try. The last show will be in a few weeks and I must say I am really glad we got these tickets! We've seen interesting things, and some not quite so fascinating ones. We've seen ballet and opera and in one way or another, enjoyed it all. I've learned I love watching ballet very much, no matter if it's modern or very classical. What I've also learned is that most opera goers have gray hair!

Surrealism in Essen - Deyan Yanev in Clowns & Pferde

Deyan Yanev in Clowns & Pferde Essen Germany

Today I visited the gallery Clowns & Pferde in Essen, as I often do. My husband wanted to see the exhibition so I went with him - and was very pleasently surprised! I usually like Clowns & Pferde anyways, but this exhibition is something very different from what I have seen there before.

Cinema Review: Anomalisa

Anomalisa Lisa puppets

Last Monday we went to a Sneak preview, that is a cinema show where you don't know what you will be seeing, only that it is a film coming into cinemas soon afterwards. The film we saw was called Anomalisa, and it is a stop-motion drama about a self-help author Michael Stone, who travels to Cincinnati to promote his book at a hotel customer service convention. He is emotionally distant to everyone around him, whom he perceives as identical white beings with identical faces and voices - including his wife and son.
