It was a busy one…lots going on in Cambridge to celebrate the arrival of Spring. On Friday night, after C finished up an experiment session, we took the Green Line from Lechemere into Boston (Haymarket) and tried out a new place that specializes in fries and Leige waffles. The fries were good; the waffles were great!
Saturday morning I went to a Japanese tea ceremony demonstration at the big H, and then headed over to MIT to check out the MIT150 Open House (unfortunately, I missed both the Black Hawk helicopter and the flash mob, but still had a fun time). We then met up with a high school friend of C’s at the Greater Boston Buddhist Cultural Center for a very, very tasty vegetarian Chinese meal. We’ll definitely be back (the center, whose “waiters” are all volunteers, has the added bonus of offering only one menu item – the daily special – and so requires no difficult decisions).
Saturday afternoon, C worked, and I wandered around the Harvard “Arts First” festival, checking out some a capella, break dancing, other modern dance, improv, student-produced documentary films, and much more. It was actually one year ago exactly that we visited Boston to do some house-hunting, and the same festival was going on that weekend (so it brought back some fun memories).
Today (Sunday) was another busy one – I got up early, met a few friends at Park Street, and embarked on a 20-mile walk around the Boston metropolitan area (ostensibly as a fund-raiser, although our fund-raising was
pretty weak non-existent). We quit around mile 17, but because we took a few detours to find snacks, I think our total mileage was right around 20 miles. It was a lot of fun, and a beautiful day…although after 20 miles, my feet are a little tired, so I think tonight is a movie night.
Hope you had a fun weekend, too!
