What are the Quakers?

The U of A would never be featured on Jeopardy like this….


So I’ve been trying to explain to everyone that houses in Philly look very different from Edmonton.

The first thing that I try to describe is that houses are kind of like our townhouses – there isn’t any space between them. They’re smushed right up against each other.

Philly Houses

There totally isn’t four feet between each house and the property line!

But I usually get blank looks.¬† Everyone smiles and nods but I can tell that they can’t really picture what I’m describing.¬† That’s when I try to explain that they’re kinda like brownstones. More blank stares. (Actually I don’t even know if I know what a brownstone is.)

So I figured I would save everyone the hassle and just post pictures. Here you go!

So now I hope you know what to expect when you visit Philadelphia =)
