BOSTON, MA -- So unfortunately these blog posts are generally shorter than I'd like. In fact, my apologies for it taking nearly 3 weeks to post again since the Shuttle Launch. Since then, I spent a few days up in Daytona Beach, then a little over a week at home, and I've been here in Boston for a little over a week now. Since I'm working, and my free time is relatively limited, it's hard to put much of anything together. I am including another picture that I really like from the Celtics parade yesterday.
As far as attractions I've seen, so far I've made it to the JFK Presidential Library, the 5 Wits Museum, Fenway Park (tour), numerous hotels all over the Boston area, a forest preserve, and all over Cambridge (specifically Harvard Square, exactly 2 blocks from my room in Hastings Hall on Mass. Ave.). Today will be quite a busy but I'm sure a great day. We're having our Boston city tours. Sadly, since I'm the logistical coordinator, I will not be able to go on one of these tours. However, I'll be driving around making sure everyone is in the right place at the right time, and as such, I'll get to see a few of the highlights including Paul Revere's House and the Prudential Observatory (in the Prudential Building, the 2nd-tallest in Boston). Tonight we're eating dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe downtown, and it'll be fun to tell my Vegas stories regarding that.
Here's my new goal: So my roommate in Wisconsin from New Jersey is about a 5 hour drive away. He called me yesterday, and apparently he has Yankees-Mets tickets for the last game between the two teams at Shea Stadium (since they're tearing it down). The game is next Saturday night, and my new goal is to get so far ahead on all of my work that nobody will even notice me if I disappear for a day. I'll let you know how it works out.
