BOSTON FEELS LIKE A SMART CITY

I spent a few days in Boston this week attending The New Marketing summit. I learned a lot and have a ton of work to do according to what they discussed. In between the conference and whilst waiting for my flight back home, I was able to do a little site seeing. And, like I always do when I'm in an urban environment...daydream that I live there.
New England is one of those places that just looks like it was created for the fall. Pumpkins are at home there. Leaves of all colors fit right in. Cobblestone, colonial details, faded red bricks, and college students wouldn't belong any place else. At least that's what it feels like when you are wandering around Boston Commons or Harvard or Old Granary Cemetery.
Here are some photos.

2. Old Granary Cemetery {I became obsessed with the headstones}
3. Another headstone
4. Ye Old Union Oyster House {oldest restaurant in N. America}
5. The Old State House {from that balcony, the Declaration of Independence was read first}
6. Harvard campus {smart people look just like I do...but yet, they are so different}
7. All Saints Way {this little alley was in North End. It was so unusual and unexpected to see}
8. Boston skyline {taken from the USS Constitution harbor}

I wanna go!! I miss the feeling of fall, it is a subtle change here. I also love old cemetaries, it is so much fun to read the headstones.

I looks like you had a great time, that is when you weren't working.

We went to Boston this Spring. I had no idea how charming it was.
