He arrived late, saying( which is probably true) that he had been there on time, but left thinking we might not be meeting at the hotel, which we specifically requested. He had not gotten tickets to Independence Hall, which we had to see the next day with the Park Service Guide. He was dressed too casually and was too flippant about the sights we were to see. We mostly saw the Liberty Bell and walked in Independence Park. All four of us were terribly disappointed.
