I layed-over in Philadelphia for a couple of nights between conferences on my 2011 American Odyssey tour. I was most excellently hosted by Doc Karma, taking a day off from his plans for world domination (they still need a little work as they hinge on his invasion forces walking to New Zealand).

USS Olympia is tied up there, opposite the New Jersey…I was fascinated by the contrasts in decor between one of the first modern ironclads and one of the last. ornate, most definitely. Over the top…nope, just the standards of the time…






Even the armament has an ornate steam-punky arty feel to it…
