A very Boston day


This afternoon, I walked from Beacon Hill to the Back Bay, and then over to Cambridge to explore Harvard, and finally, back to Beacon Hill. It was about an 8-mile walk, and it felt good to stretch my legs after, you know, quitting exercise this fall. Boston is beautiful, and if I wasn’t so set on Nashville, I would seriously consider moving here.

Sadly, I did not spot any “Harvard Hotties” in Cambridge. In fact, I realized that a significant part of the Harvard population is made up of college freshman – and I just can’t “go young.” I walked around the campus for awhile, but eventually was intimidated by the electricity of brain waves in the air, so I bought myself a coffee and left.

Christina took me to Pizzeria Regina in the North End for dinner, which is billed as being the “World’s! Best! Pizza!” We were not disappointed. They even gave us our Sangiovese in big tumblers.

We ended our night by watching “The Departed,” with a Boston mob history lesson from Dan, Christina’s husband. It was the best kind of day: walking for miles and miles, only to eat well in the evening, and watch some serious Scorsese carnage.

Boston, my booty – and my belly – thank you.

    that’s the real experience…
    watching the departed in boston.

    i’m a little disappointed you didn’t find any good harvard guys.
    maybe they all left once natalie portman graduated.

    oh and i’m glad that you thought of me when you saw an asian baby postcard.
    that’s been my plan all along.
    try to get people to think of me everytime they see a cute asian baby.
    i don’t really know how that will help me in life,
    but at least i’ve accomplished something.

    Worlds best pizza? That’s a big claim. . . but the sangiovese probably puts it over the top.

    If I hadn’t just had the flu, and if it wasn’t 6:15 in the morning, both of those would probably sound awesome.
