Beantown - Day 10

Updated: Jun 23, 2021



After driving in Chicago, I felt really confident in my ability to drive through any city. When I arrived in Boston, there wasn't as much traffic as I expected. Instead, the streets were just very confusing to navigate. Even while walking the streets are difficult to navigate.



Since I enjoyed the boat tour in Chicago so much, I decided to take another boat tour in Boston! Unfortunately, the views on the tour were quite underwhelming compare to the tour in Chicago. It was my first time ever seeing the Atlantic Ocean, though, so it was really nice to get out onto the water.

It was a beautiful day too! The tour guide was also very knowledgeable and I learned a lot. Including that Boston has 34 islands (and that some of these islands are manmade). If I could redo my evening in Boston, I would've preferred to take a bus tour instead. The architecture in Boston is so gorgeous and historic so being in the ocean I feel like I missed out on a lot of it! It's always nice to get skyline pictures, which I wouldn't have been able to do if I hadn't gone on the boat.



When I got back from my tour, I enjoyed a meal at Bostonia. While I was at dinner, I realized that most of the service workers weren't outgoing. This seemed like a pretty common thing with the people that I interacted with throughout the day. Regardless, I enjoyed the food and the Bostonian accents. Next time, I hope to venture out to the North side and eat out there. That is where all the great Italian restaurants are supposed to be. Additionally, I still need to go to pub in Boston!



The other thing that I had hoped to do in Boston was to go on a ghost tour, but by the time I had finished dinner, I decided to take the rest of the night off. I have not given up on taking a ghost tour on this trip! There is still Savannah, or may New Orleans. We shall see!

Oh, and I’m loving all of your photos of standing in the middle of tall buildings and shooting upward. You should compile them all into a whole series (if you haven’t already).

Though I haven’t been to Boston, I think customer service in the Northeast from DC and on up is pretty underwhelming compared to the West Coast. I remember being surprised at how friendly everyone was in SF and then even more so at how helpful City of Sacramento employees were when we moved here and I needed to get a parking permit.

Yup, I think if you've ever worked in the service industry you just try to be extra nice to everyone.
