After coming out of Stroudsburg down small country roads the rest of the morning was spent on the canal path between the Delaware River and the Delaware canal. Pleasant, although a little samey after a while.
In the afternoon the route went back to country roads into Philly, finishing with a trail which brought me right into the heart of the city pretty much traffic free.
I took a rest day in Philly and the bars and conversations were numerous and varied, ranging from discussions of Catalan identity to speech therapy to the London and New York music scenes. There was also much talk of travel, pretty much all of the Americans I have met have been pretty well traveled. Hopefully I will be back to spend more time in Philadelphia in the future as it is rather splendid.
