Boston in a nutshell

I've been neglecting the blog lately due to pre-vacation craziness, vacation, and post-vacation resetting. There is a lot of stuff on my mind that I'd like to get into blog form. In the meantime, here's my Boston vacation litany, delineated by days:

our hostess picked us up from the airport
brief stop at a poker game at a friend's house

wedding in Belmont
wandering in Cambridge (including Burdick's in Harvard Square, Punjabi Dhaba and Lorem Ipsum books in Inman Square, down Prospect to Central Square, and up Mass Ave back to Harvard Square)
after-party at Redline in Harvard Square

more wandering in Cambridge (Ryles Jazz Brunch, more chai at Punjabi Dhaba, stopping at friends' apartments, Garment District, MIT and French House, dinner at LĂȘ's in Harvard Square)

driving to Putney, VT
lunch in Brattleboro, VT

more Freedom Trail and side trips in the North End
hanging out at a friend's place near Central Square to get out of the rain

lunch at Betty's Wok and Noodle, across from the Symphony
wandering Back Bay for drinks and coffee
The Mapparium!
