Walking in Philidelphia

Pat and Michael gave us a tour of Philidelphia and we wandered through historic areas, past the famous mosaics (see previous photo), museums, and parks. They covered many of the famous sights and several which were of personal interest, including the house where Maria's father had lived as a child. We ended a wonderful day in a large, wooded park. There on a hillside, we found this statue of an unknown indian chief. It is thought that he is looking for his people who are gone. He has been waiting like this since the early 1900's and Maria's father used to see him as he explored these woods so many years ago. Posted by Picasa

As kids we always knew him as Teddi Eskimo and the legend was he jumped from that cliff because the white settlers had taken his daugher. Not much truth to it, but a good story to tell! His real name is Teediuscong.
