Fall Revelations in Boston

November 6, 2012

Last Saturday, when the rest of my household, including my cat Lilu, was still seeing dreams, I woke up from the piercing sun rays that were gradually filling out space. It looked gorgeous outside and grabbing my headphones and my ear muffs, I was on my way to a date with Boston.

Needless to say, Boston is captivating. But you would think that after three and a half years living here, my feelings toward the city would become slightly muted. Wrong. They just grow fonder the more I’m here.

So walking slowly on a chilly but sunny and wind-free morning, sipping my Skinny Vanilla and listening to the Passion Pit radio on Pandora, I immersed myself in the city I fell in love with from the first sight. Passing neighborhood after neighborhood, discovering new areas and nodding to familiar sites, I was leisurely enjoying my date with Boston probably for the hundredth time.

Here are some fruits of that awesome day. Take a look and share with me your impressions of Boston!

    I did the exact same thing this weekend. And you said it perfectly — Boston is captivating (even 3 years later). Beautiful photos, too!
