Philadelphia is a historic city that’s very rich and diverse in culture. It’s also known as the “City of Brotherly Love”. Many flock to Philadelphia to take a stroll down the cobblestone streets in Old City, visit the Liberty Bell at Independence Mall, take a run up the Art Museum steps (while yelling Adrienneeee in your own Rocky Balboa’s voice) or to gobble down our world known Philly Cheesesteaks. I’ve been a resident here for almost 20years and I can’t image growing up in any other city. Philadelphia is a fast paced city during the day and offers an eventful nightlife. If you’re single or have a family there’s always something here for everyone to enjoy. Please click on VISITPHILLY.COM for attractions and events.
I admit I hadn’t visited our Putnam County Agricultural Fair in many years until last year when my husband wanted to ride the Double Ferris Wheel.

So we went, walked around the midway, watched a bit of the tractor pull event and left after riding the Double Ferris Wheel a couple of times.
My father’s parents were born in this area in 1902. My parents were born in 1932, and were married in 1952. I always thought that was an interesting play on the number 2. As with most towns in Tennessee in the 1920’s and 1930’s, there wasn’t a lot going on in the way of entertainment. Most of the area inhabitants were farmers who worked long hours to bring in crops and livestock.
I would like to thank Mohamad Al Karbi for the opportunity to participate in his “Around the World” series. I have truly enjoyed reading about different places and cultures all over the globe.
I’d like to share an insider’s view of my city, Virginia Beach, Virginia. I’ve lived close to “The Beach” my entire life. I went to college in this lively city, and now I’m raising my family here.
When you ask a person about the oldest structure in the world, many people would immediately think of the enchanting Taj Mahal. Though there are many recorded structures from earlier than 1653, the Taj Mahal comes to mind quickly due to its enchanting architecture and beauty.
