OK – I uploaded all the pictures and even added captions for you guys – woo-hoo! Here’s a summary (click on image for larger picture):
Boston Photo AlbumFriday:
Arrive without an issue around 3:30 PM. Check into our hotel
, freshen up and head out for a nice on the MIT
campus and along the river where we saw a beautiful sunset on the Charles River. Have dinner at Legal Sea Foods
then take the T-train
to the North End on a guide book recommendation. Have an after-dinner treat at Cafe Vittoria
then walk around where we inadvertently come across the Old North Church
where Paul Revere signaled that the British were invading back in 1775. Walk around some more and wind up in front of Faneuil Hall
. Take the subway back home before we turn into pumpkins for the night.
Have breakfast at the hotel and head out to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
. Spent a few hours there then head over to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall area
, this time during the day so we can get some shopping in. Meet up with my college friends Kate and Paul
, who live in the outskirts of Boston. We have a short dinner with them in order to head back to the hotel and get ready for the Eddie Izzard
show. Once again head out, have an enjoyable time at the show (the 2nd half was funnier than the 1st). We are a bit hungry when we get out so we come across a Thai/sushi place and stop in for a night cap. Being adventurous and not that tired, we decide to walk all the way back to the hotel (about an hour’s walk involving crossing the river). Make it back and get a good night’s rest.
Sunday: Have brunch at The Blue Room and head over to the MIT Museum since we had enough time before our plane left at 3:30 PM. Get to the airport with plenty of time but the turbulent weather makes the already long flight even longer… we arrive home after 4 1/2 hours in the air (it’s only 3 hours to get there due to the jet stream patterns) tired but happy.
