The TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) conference starts tomorrow, and I just got into Boston. While I have flown, and even ridden the bus through the city now and again, it has been twenty years since I've walked the streets. That means that I haven't seen the place close up since the Big Dig. Let me rephrase that. I haven't seen the place close up since before the Big Dig started, so we're talking a really long time ago.
I got into the Park Plaza and asked the concierge whether there was a Legal Seafood or something similar nearby. "Out the door. To the right. Down to the end of the block." was his answer. There's a Legal Seafood there. After a meal of the Boston Scrod (something I don't get much of in California), I stopped at a Ben and Jerry's and took advantage of the remaining fifteen minutes of Free Cone Day. I walked back to the hotel, eating my ice cream in the cold and rain.
I love Boston!
