I love Boston. I really do. It's easily my favorite city. I love the feel. I love the weather. I love the water. I love the old buildings. I love the food.
Today was a day purely of travel and food. I can do that. My day started early so I got to Boston around 11:00 in the morning. Thankfully for me, navigating this city is fairly easy. Very different from DC, if you ask me. Maybe I'm just a natural Bostonian. Anyway, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting my friend Dwyer downtown Cambridge for lunch. We haven't seen eachother in forever and she's one of my favorite people...ever.
She also happens to work down the street from this amazing little cafe, Mariposa Bakery. It featured a menu of fresh sandwiches, coffee and baked goods. It's the kind of place I would like to work. Good sammies. Not to be confused with understacked, overpriced sammies.
Did I mention this whole time I was lugging around my suitcase? And it was hot and muggy outside? Not a nice picture.
I walked back and forth checking out the streets, and finally my sister was let out of work. We met up and walked all over the real downtown. (Oh, and I dropped my suitcase off, don't worry!) We saw the harbor, faneuil hall, quincy market, the north end, the freedom trail, you name it.
Regina's, which is legendary for being the number one pizza in Boston.
Mike's Pastry, which is also in the north end. This place is incredible. I've never been in a place that is always that busy. Friday or Saturday nights forget about it.
