My sweet friend S. met me at the T station, took me for dinner at a truly Italian restaurant, Giacomo's (where the waiter literally tapped me on the shoulder and said, "hey, which'a you got the ravioli?"), to her favorite place for the best cannoli I've ever had, then let me stay the night at her apartment. All of this after I forgot to remind her I was coming & she only just happened to check Facebook after my plane had landed! Today, before my flight out, I had a couple hours to wander the city, and I really discovered how much I like it. I still may not be a fan of baseball or snow, but I'm now a big fan of Boston. I'll be back.
Next stop: Portland, Oregon!
Today I am so happy and grateful for:
~ kind, giving friends
~ deeeeelicious food
~ historic port cities (love 'em!)
