All Around Town


So, now that I've been here a couple of days, I'm going to need to fit in some shopping.

I'm going to have to hit up the local spots as well as the malls since a sista ain't been around these parts in a while.

I did a "drive by" yesterday to check some friends and old hang out spots. Some things have definitely changed while others have stayed exactly the same.

I checked out my school (Suffolk University)...


Which is by the State House...


One thing I noticed right away was: Boston looks hella small!

Not that I didn't already know this, but after crossing the 3-4 and even 5 lanes of traffic in GA on a regular basis just to go to the store, making my way through these skinny assed two lane roads seems like torture.


A view of the street corner by my house...


This is the corner of two major streets in Boston (Mass Ave/Boylston. Doesn't really look much different right? But for my street corner to look like a major (almost) downtown intersection in Beantown is kinda strange.


And this is your average residential street view in Boston. You pretty much have to slow down and move over or completely stop to let people by because people park (or double park) on both sides of the street.

Tomorrow I'll have to swing by my BFF from High School. She's getting married soon and I need to make sure a sista is not freakng out.

So far we've been slammed by the family and I haven't had time to do much else.

I'll holla @ you guys later.

  2. I'm from New England so I can relate to two lane roads. When I moved out to the Southwest, it was an adjustment.

    Enjoy your trip!
