view of downtown from Erica's apartment in East Boston
Here's a quick list of what Day Two consisted of:
Massachusetts State House
Bunker Hill Monument
Margaritas and guacamole at Angela's Cafe
Drinks and Burgers at JM Curley
We then walked about, past the State House (built in 1798) and other noteworthy places I didn't make a particular note for, to get the Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. There was a troupe of street performers starting up outside the Hall, so we watched them perform, dance, jump, beg and plead for money, before strolling through the Hall which had little souvenir shops, a cafe and ice cream place (I picked up a few postcards). The Hall was a marketplace and meeting house, built in 1742. There is a large statue of Sam Adams out front; he gave speeches there and there began rumblings about revolution.
I am imagining Justin Timberlake singing "bring it on down to Bagelville!"
I love this picture of a man with his dog, city in the background.
Then we went back to Erica's for a half hour break, before heading down the street for 10$ manicures (awesome), and meeting up with Emma again for a trip to the Food Network famous Angela's Cafe (also in East Boston, a ten minute walk from the airport stop on the blue line).
