    Nices shots! What camera did you use?

    The last pic looks like Back Bay, around Newbury St. Am I right?

    Been to Boston many times. I lived in NH 52 years and used to go to Boston every Monday for a company I worked for in NH and always liked going there and the "128 loop".

    The song "Dirty Water" was written about Boston.

    I'm gonna tell you a story
    I'm gonna tell you about my town
    I'm gonna tell you a big bad story, baby
    Aww, it's all about my town

    Yeah, down by the river
    Down by the banks of the river Charles (aw, that's what's happenin' baby)
    That's where you'll find me
    Along with lovers, fuggers, and thieves (aw, but they're cool people)
    Well I love that dirty water
    Oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, you're the Number One place)
    Frustrated women (I mean they're frustrated)
    Have to be in by twelve o'clock (oh, that's a shame)
    But I'm wishin' and a-hopin, oh
    That just once those doors weren't locked (I like to save time for
    my baby to walk around)
    Well I love that dirty water
    Oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, yeah)

    Because I love that dirty water
    Oh, oh, Boston, you're my home (oh, yeah)

    Well, I love that dirty water (I love it, baby)
    I love that dirty water (I love Baw-stun)
    I love that dirty water (Have you heard about the Strangler?)
    I love that dirty water (I'm the man, I'm the man)
    I love that dirty water (Owww!)
    I love that dirty water (Come on, come on)

    It's a very cool city, used to spend quite a bit of time up there. Love the architecture. Not fun to drive around though.

    If you ever want to eat at a good Chinese Restaurant that doesn't cost a lot, try the Moon Villa on the edge of Boston's Chinatown. I haven't eaten there in decades but it used to be great and they say it still is.

    We had dinner and drinks at this place called Bella Luna in Jamaica Plains. They had a beer on tap called Sun Ray Ale that Sam Adams made just for them. Best calarami I've ever had.
