Yes, we also have BHH. Almost a week ago to the day, i met up with KK and we spent the day wondering the lovely streets. (Man, i just killed all the kB like some one i know). Ahem (clears throught and arranges to tell tales…)).
We met up at about 2.00pm and since i was moving that day, KK (begrudgingly) offered to “help” me out. (did i say thank you? thank you). He wanted to ride the train, something he doesn’t get to do all the time. If we could switch lives, I would trade riding the train ANY DAY.
We packed up the car and left for lands unknown. (okay, not true) we went to the Museum of Science to watch the greatest places on earth, which if you ask me, weren’t that great.
The awesome thing: In the Mugar Omni Theater, the world’s largest film format is projected onto a five-story-tall IMAX® Dome screen. It wraps audiences in larger-than-life images of flora, fauna, and faraway places. A state-of-the-art digital sound system completes the immersion effect.
Let me break that down for you: Imagine that the image spans past what your eye can actually see. we are talking the image “wrapping” itself around you and you are actually part of the image.
Awesome, i tell you! Awesome!!
Any one coming down, look me up… its a must see!!!
Then, we headed over to faneuil Hall (which is also known as Quinicy market) to get something to eat. I have always wondered WHY they named the hall that but well… since i wasnt consulted through the naming process, what can i say? we ended up at Dick’s Last resort, which actually makes it into “broke in Boston’s” guide book. ( I think i should point out that cheap is relative). After a sumptuous meal of Chicky chicken and steak something (that had a lot of salad) we headed over to Newbury street. KK’s having the salad made me think that maybe he was telling me something…….
Boston is apparently walking city so we did a really slow walk to Newbury, which is also one of those landmark streets. Has all those awesome shops that you shyly glance at and keep walking. Fun times, i tell you… fun times.
We sipped on Vanilla bean coffee’s (or whatever they are called) and caught up on life. I hadn’t seen him since some time in November, i think. we spoke about Migingo, children,dreams (or lack there of), taking up running… and everything in between.
Finally jumped back on the train to go back to the car, which i imagine was KK’s highlight of the day. His account is here
I am now looking for age appropriate plot. I realized that hanging with kiddies wasnt helping me much. (i know, i been talking abt that for a long). I am definitely looking forward to the Scooper Bowl, which is some thingy where u pay an entrance fee and eat as much ice cream as you want. Who wants in?
