On the Road: Boston, part 1
So I got behind a little bit on my writing last week…because my sister and I went to Boston! Yes! It’s so fun to have siblings to travel with because you can be completely yourself—whether it’s giggling at the smallest things, talking in accents for no apparent reason, read for an entire afternoon instead of touring, or gorging yourself on ice cream. You are basically genetically pre-disposed to have a good time, right?
The first day we spent touring the Back Bay Area and Copley Square. It happened to be Easter, so we slipped into Trinity Church for their evening service. One of the coolest moments was when we all got up to take communion and actually went all the way up to the apse, where we formed a giant circle around the priest. There were many more people than a typical service because it was Easter and it took forever for them to serve us all. But standing together, singing and reciting, was pretty wonderful. Though all strangers, all of our lives intersected for a moment, our voices echoing throughout a building that is hundreds of years old.
Afterwards we went to dinner nearby and just walked around, enjoying the crisp evening air (their trees do not yet have leaves, though some are just beginning to bloom) and catching the sites. Boston is so clean and well-organized. I love walking down Newbury Street and window shopping, listening to people talk and laugh at cafes as we pass by.
