While that may not be strictly true, my biological clock is still rather confused, so I have enough energy to give you the lowdown of my day here in Philadelphia. It can be summed up pretty easily, too - I did a lot of walking! And that's great, because Philly is a rather european place in that most places of consequence can be reached on foot quite easily. But that's not the only europeanish aspect: much of the city has a distintly european, or rather english flavour to it. Which probably won't be much of a surprise because it is in New England ... anyway, that's how I like it!
Tonight, I went to see the Dave Ramsey Trio in the Café Habana, where I also had a good dinner. This trio of music students appears to have a very ecclectic repertoire - tonight, they gave us some all time jazz classics, what with Chet Baker & everything. It was great fun in a relaxed atmosphere. I knew about it because I met Dave at The Last Drop where I had breakfast. Since he seems to like e.s.t. as much as I do, I followed his recommendations to see them play tonight and also got the latest album of The Bad Plus, which I didn't have time to listen to, yet. Right about now, I think I am tired enough to go indulge myself in some sleep.
Sleepless in Philly

Apologies for being obnoxiously picky, but Philadelphia isn't generally considered to be in New England--that's sort of like saying Basel is in the Alps! New England basically runs from Connecticut up to Maine, whereas Philly is more Mid-Atlantic...
Not obnoxious at all - thanks for battling ignorance on all grounds! ;-)
