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.

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

Cobblestone streets – easy for horses to walk on, bit more tricky for humans
Beautiful wrought iron everywhere

Inside Memorial Hall, very Hogwarts, right?
