The weather has improved. It had stopped Raining and the heatless sun was out.  I only knew of two "Must See" Tourist destinations in Philadelphia. The steps that Rocky runs up in "Rocky" movies and the First Penitentiary. I have a free Tourist map and I can only see the prison on it. I follow the map to where the prison should be and I find nothing. I look at the map again and only then notice that there is an arrow on the picture of the prison pointing off the map. Cursing time again. Not knowing how far off the map the prison was I a abandon this mission and head back to the city to find a book shop that will tell me where the Rocky steps are. When I get close to the city a notice a grand big building in the distance down one of the streets. It looked big enough to have some steps going up to it. So I change direction and start walking towards it. Big buildings have a optical allusion thing about them, they look closer than they actually are. It took ages to reach the building and when I did it turned out to be the Railway station. I could have cursed at this point but I know Railway stations have toilets and food, both of which I really needed.

When I recharged, I headed back to "Borders" in the city. After Testing a lot of books that I decided I did not want to buy. I had learned that the Rocky Steps where actually the steps of the Art gallery and that the prison was not that far from the Art gallery. To cut a long walking story to a short stroll, I eventually completed my days mission. Two major sights in the Bag.
