Friday Field Trip……a day late

October 27, 2007 at 8:24 pm (Uncategorized)

Well, I had an awesome time today with Metalmom and her friend, Lostmahead. They are great chicks and we laughed the whole time. We took a mural tour of West Philly and it was well worth the money. Enjoy the pictures. It seemed like there was a mural on every corner. We also found out that Philadelphia has the most murals in the world. (click to enlarge)

The mural with the huge boy with the medals around his neck and the other with the mural of Africa were all done in mosaic tiles. It was spectacular!
Cheer, here is an explanation of how to go about getting a mural. There are companies that sponsor the murals, which I believe covers some of the costs as well.
