Coming to Boston directly from Austin was literally a chilling experience. I checked the weather the week before I left for the US and Boston showed up with temperatures from 10 to 15 degrees Celcius. When I got there though the temperature was more like 2 to 5 degrees, which was a real shock coming from around 30 degrees in Austin. My first stop was consequently Macy’s where I was able to find a warm jacket to make it through my stay in Boston.
The schedule for my stay in Boston was – like in Austin – pretty tight. I arrived on a Friday, but a cold put me in bed most of Saturday and part of Sunday. Eventually I found some time to explore and snap a few pictures from icy cold Boston.
At the very centre of the city you find Copley with shopping, hotels and all the stuff you expect to find in a big city. I found several buildings in the city centre built in “castle style”. I guess there’s an explanation for this in the city history somewhere – I found them interesting.
No visit to Boston without looking in on Cheers – at least no first visit. I’m almost sorry I went inside – it’s a real tourist trap and no trace of “where everybody know your name”. I guess I shouldn’t have expected it anyway …
Across the street from Cheers though I find a real treasure. Boston Common Park!
I enjoyed walking around the park taking in the atmosphere and admiring the scenery.
I was taken by this tree – it made me think of a dancer.
My stay in Boston was way too short. There’re so much to see and so much left to do there! Hopefully I’ll be able to go back there too …
