Boston: I Spy...

Okay, so I finally made the move to Boston. Hurrah, right? Well...it's everything I hoped it would be and more, and it's nothing like I thought. Does that make sense? Trust me, I'll make some time to explain about law school, living in an apartment, the subway, hurricane Irene, a day in my life, etc...but I'm munching on a croissant for lunch and only have so much time before class.

So here's a list of some random sights and sounds I've experienced in my three weeks in Boston:

* a group of Buddhist monks walking through Chinatown
* Nuns
* a Greek Orthodox monk (bald head, long beard, grey robe, wooden cross as a belt)
* public urination
* several blind people. Some had seeing-eye dogs and most had the stick thingie.)
* People using sign language on the subway
* LOTS of homeless people
* a homeless man who lives in the park and the pigeons sit on his head. Remember the lady in "Home Alone 2"?
* Earthquake during Torts. The professor didn't notice and kept teaching
* really cute Freedom Trail tour-guides
* A protest about the war in Libya and the refugees
* Street performers being shut down by the po-po
* open-mic stand-up comedy at a bar
* got SOAKING wet in the rain
* more abandoned mattresses and futons than I've ever seen in my life!

There's more...but my lunch break is over. :)

  1. I remember when I moved from FL to Boston. "it's everything I hoped it would be and more, and it's nothing like I thought" makes PERFECT sense!
