Living History

Boston is steeped in history, and so beautiful. Especially at Christmas, when the houses are decorated with green wreaths and huge red bows, with tastefully twinkling fairy lights at night. It snowed very briefly on Christmas Day, just enough for this Aussie to get very excited. Paull and I did one of our speed-tours (we walk fast and can pack a lot into one day in a new city). The Freedom trail, a museum, lunch at Cheers, the art museum (Degas, Little Ballerina - fantastic) then a restorative drink at the Union Oyster House.....where I ordered a whiskey and soda (to warm up) and the bartender said, looking puzzled: "We don't have any cider"....

Good to see a sample of your visit to the US! Hope you got your "cider" sorted! Accents are so much fun and those in Boston can be trying to the rest of us!

Have fun!!

Thanks for sharing this. I love this little statue. I wonder if the tutu will eventually have to be replaced, or whether they will clean it from time to time.
