A day out in Boston, MA

I have spent from about 10am to 5pm in Boston April 2014, it is long way to go for a day. I had flown out there for business in Billerica, just outside Boston. Then I stayed on the Friday night, so I could see Boston.

It was a very wet day! I checked bag into left luggage at the train station. Of course I carried my work laptop that should never, leave anywhere around. That left luggage closed about 5.30 so, had to clock watch. Would not have wanted to have to fly back without luggage including laptop!

As wanted to stay dry and see as much as possible, I booked on to a bus tour. I first got off the bus to go on a duck boat! A boat turned; into boat on hitting water!

I next got off bus to do some of Freedom trail. The Freedom trail is about slavery and holocaust. There is a Holocaust memorial where walk through clear chambers. Gas floats up from floor, mimicking gas chambers. The clear walls have the numbers of everyone killed in Holocaust etched on them.

I also got, off the bus to see Cheers bar. Inside it does not look like does in tv programme.

At the end of the tour, I went looking for China town because, I had just read a Tess Gerritsen set in Boston’s China town.

I then walked to the train station and retrieved bag and got the shuttle to airport. I was really early, so after checking in my bag, I got to sit in a rocking chair overlooking a runway.

Unfortunately, I seem to have lost lots of pics from the trip, lucky that I have memories!

Names that I have photographed

Some of the many names on the wall of the Pinkadova Synagogue in Prague of Czech Republic. How to make sense of all the names? I would like to find out more about those who shared my name; any suggestions where to look?
