This week’s “Flashback Friday” isn’t expat related. It’s America’s Independence Day! So I thought I’d celebrate with re-visiting a post that has two photos from a 1988 trip to Philadelphia of The Liberty Bell and Independence Hall (with my young daughters and their Dad featured prominently, of course!)
But first, a short quote and a current photo: today, as “on every Fourth of July, at 2pm Eastern time, children who are descendants of Declaration signers symbolically tap the Liberty Bell 13 times while bells across the nation also ring 13 times in honor of the patriots from the original 13 states” (from the Independence Hall Association — please visit that link to read more of my country’s history).

A 1988 trip to Philadelphia when the girls were small, visiting the tourist areas and feeling a part of U.S. history.
