Nathan and I spent this past week touring around Boston. We had a great time, walking and walking, snapping millions of pics, eating in Beacon Hill, the North End, Chinatown, Harvard Square, and at Boston Commons. We tasted lots of great things, but this simple lunch of a sandwich, cup of soup, and cappuccino was the most satisfying because we were (damn) cold and the lunch was (beautifully) hot.

(Non-food pics in the gallery below.)

View from our hotel, looking over Boston Commons at the Charles River

The Robert Gould Shaw Memorial – his sword was stolen when the Red Sox won the World Series

Pine cones are a recurring motif

The gold dome of the Massachusetts State House, plated by Paul Revere (with a pine cone on top)

Gas lanterns, lit 24 hours/day, all over Beacon Hill

Beautiful doors, all unique

Every home in Beacon Hill has a cool door knocker

Love this one

Hidden house

Louisburg Square

Senator John Kerry’s window box

Cobblestone streets – easy for horses to walk on, bit more tricky for humans

Beautiful wrought iron everywhere

Harvard Memorial Hall

Inside Memorial Hall, very Hogwarts, right?

John Harvard’s shoe

These were all over Harvard Yard

JFK Library (spectacular building designed by I.M. Pei)

Walkway to water front, overlooking Columbia Point

Library atrium

The North End/Little Italy

The Freedom Trail walking tour is marked by this red brick line
