Here we are. I can’t believe the wonderful week in Boston is over again. Good times always go by soooo fast ;) but hey, at least I am back here to tell you about it.Last Sunday was great. I took the “T” and bus in the afternoon to meet with my friend Annie. It was one of my “blind dates” again :) Annie lives in Chelsea, a suburb of Boston and it took me about an hour to get there… I accidentally left the bus a few stops too early and had to walk a bit to find her apartment house.
It was her birthday on Saturday, so she had a nice get together with some friends. There were her sister Caroline, her friends Tara and Sarah and I. We had a nice afternoon, talking about this and that, explaining how we all met Annie *lol* and then we ordered some pizza for dinner. Afterward we lit the candles on her birthday cake and she had to make a wish :) and then we had some cake for dessert. It really was a fun time. Tara gave Caroline and me a ride to the “T” station and I got back to Cambridge around 9:30 pm.
The next three days were all about more sightseeing. I went to see Harvard Square, Cambridge, Kenmore Square, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, the Harbor, Quincy Market, Downtown Crossing, Newbury Street,… just to give you a slight idea of what you can do in Boston! The greatest thing is – as I mentioned earlier – that you can do everything by foot! I walked soooo much during the last week… it was awesome! :)
Tuesday night we went to see a Baseball game @ Fenway Park! It was my first Baseball game in the US… believe it or not! I’ve always wanted to go, but never managed to get tickets. So I was really excited to finally go and see a Baseball game LIVE… and it was very special, because I got to see my first game in Boston :) after the Red Sox won the World Series last year! It was amazing! The score was 8:11 (unfortunately they lost this time after leading the game up to the 8th inning!) and that’s a really high score for baseball… which means there were a lot of hits and runs = a lot of action :) I bought a really nice Red Sox shirt for Jon!
Wednesday I did some more souvenir shopping and got a nice Boston sweater and a photo frame at Quincy Market.
I also wanted to buy a Boston puzzle. One shop had a really nice skyline photo as a puzzle and I decided to get it on the way back to the “T”, so it wouldn’t get rained on… and then the store was closed! I was so disappointed! :( I was thinking, maybe I can get it online or something.
Thursday was the day to say “good bye”. It was kinda sad to leave Boston again already… time always flies when you’re having a good time. The flight back was smooth though. I am always afraid of turbulence.
We got back to Sacramento at 7:00 pm (local time) and we made some chicken and rice for dinner and then went to bed.
I had to work Friday which wasn’t too bad as my boss was out of the office, so I had a nice, quiet day to start work again! Friday night we watched the Playoffs. The Kings were 0:2 behind and really needed a victory that night pretty badly! And they won! I knew they could do it… as soon as they start to play as a team (as nearly no other NBA team does!), they can win everything!!! It was an awesome game!
Tonight is the next game and they have to win that, too… but I am confident since they’re playing at home at Arco Arena again and that will give them an extra boost! :) I am so excited about tonight! Keep your fingers crossed, would you?
The whole weekend was just relaxing… I went shopping for stationary stuff yesterday (which is always fun :)) and I am planning to do some more scrapbooking today (although I can’t wait to get prints from my Boston photos!!!). I’ll post them soon!
