We had a really fun weekend in Boston (and, since we were staying in Cambridge, there was plenty of potable water!) And we figured a few things out:
1. Still not 100% sure about the “Beantown” nickname, but it has something to do with Boston Baked Beans and a burst tank of molasses…
2. We will not be homeless next year! We signed a least on a really wonderful unit in Huron Village, in West Cambridge. It is the second story of a 3-level house. There are little shops and restaurants and bakeries on nearby streets, a pond a few blocks over that has a running/walking trail. We love it!
3. We survived the redeye (it might actually be the best way to adjust to the time difference). It turns out, a 5 hour flight just isn’t much fun, whether it’s during the day, or at night. I do have to give JetBlue props for: cheap tickets, providing free eye masks and ear plugs on the red-eye, a decent snack selection, and TV with the Food Network.
