After the somewhat disappointment at New York, we can't wait to escape to Philadelphia for the normal type of US city. Every city is different, of course. The normal type we were seeking is the American hospitality-people willing to help others and care more than just money. After several hours' drive, Philadelphia was here. 
It is not a WOW city. You won't see glamorous lights like in NY, no high buildings too exaggerate. The city quietly stood their by itself. Out of no reason, I began to like it. Firstly, we found a Sichuan restaurant for decent Chinese food at the China town. That place turned out to be great. They offered really original Sichuan style food( very very spicy), even meat on the stick. What's more, there is Karaoke next to it. Great place to get entertained. Getting back to Holiday Inn after dinner, the hotel was another extraordinary experience. My friend was kidding that Holiday Inn was the TRS(Tall Rich Shine) among all Inns. Well, I don't know if that is true of not. But the room is way more gorgeous than the hotel room we stayed in New York for which we paid way higher and the space is several times larger. We told our friends don't go to bed too early as we want to call poker game. My friend said of course because the room was too good for him to directly go sleep without any entertaining enjoyment. That's just a great way of starting a trip,not to mention the delicious breakfast the next day.
Getting up early the next morning, I finally saw that we stayed near the city river of Philadelphia. Walking out on its street, I saw signs of an ancient city that a strong nation once assigned its capitol to. All types of historical buildings, very western style, and different historical sites were there to explain where US came from. I am not a knowledgable historical person, unfortunately. What I felt was that atmosphere and past stories that tour guides shared. Also, the historical event posters were good to read. We toured around the Liberty Bell, the Independence Square, and the fist juridical court etc. I believe a person with more insights into history will get a lot more here than any one of us. That's mindful travel. 
For me, a historical city is good to visit, but only to visit. Road trip around big cities these days made me miss Cincinnati a little. That's the type of city fun to live, to work and to lead a life. Well, maybe Columbus is better and cleaner. Mindful travel takes me and that's the best. Tight travel schedule made me feel that we were always on the run these past days. Not enough time to digest what a new place has brought us. Less mindful I guess. A little bit more photo-oriented. Visit a famous site and take photos to prove you ever visited here. I never wanted that. However, sometimes things turn out to be that inevitably. It has to do with time, opportunity, your companies and yourself at that time. Days of road trip together with the extremely cold weather took away most of my energy. I am ready to get back to my original world.
Our final station is Washington DC, the political center of US, the city visited three time by so far. This time, we were there mainly to satisfy my friend's wish to visit. Finally, we arrived at Morgantown after heavy snow along the way. Another long long poker game and our Thanksgiving trip was officially over.
I feel good since after this time's trip, I am not the one who will leave. I am staying for at least another month with bmp. Happy thanksgiving.
Leave enough time for your traveling next time, my friends.
