Back from Boston

Sam Aquarium, Boston, Friends, Night 1 Comment

The past week in Boston went by way too fast, but I did get to catch-up with friends and co-workers. On Sunday night, Pat, Ryan and I went to the St.Anthony’s Feast in the North End.

Tried to drive through downtown Boston during rush hour. On the map it seemed fairly direct, until I realized that 80% of the roads are one-way streets. There is 1 rule: Don’t get hit. 3 weeks left in the term…I am serious this entire term seems shorter than the 2 exam weeks!
