Day 20

I arrived at my hostel at approximately 2am to be greeted by a man (Gerry), who I can only describe as Danny Devito in Matilda, wearing nothing but a hand towel. He was also lying in MY bunk bed and went on to talk in his sleep- it was far from ideal.

“Gerry, that’s my bed”

In the morning I had a walk around the town and visited the Public Gardens. They were very pretty and, just a side note, the squirrels here are absolute tanks. Tried to take a photo of one but he squared up to me and there’s no way I could’ve taken him alone.

In the afternoon I went across to Harvard University. Still regret turning their unconditional offer down, especially after I pulled it out the bag with a distinctly average ABC (and D in French AS- merde).

The campus is so beautiful and I only exaggerated my accent slightly to sound smarter πŸ‘Ό

Day 21

Got absolutely zero sleep last night thanks to my man, Gerry. That is no exaggeration either, I’ve never experienced snoring or sleeptalking like it- I’d have had a better nights sleep in the Chokey. Exponentially worse than the bear woman in Vegas and plus he was quite creepy, so I have fled my room and left Gerry behind. Goodbye Gerry, I will not miss you (nor your alarming sleep apnoea) one bit.

An exact representation of what happened

Today I did the Freedom Trail walk and went to the Quincey Food Market (thank you Vadim for the suggestion). The trail walk was a great way to see Boston and its different landmarks- you basically just follow the red brick road across the city. Didn’t have a tin man or a lion as company but there wasn’t a random man behind a curtain at the end of it either, which was refreshing. I would definitely recommend if you’re visiting. The food was so good, too 😍

Boston is a very lovely place. It’s full of old, red brick buildings and cute little parks and there’s great markets/places to eat around pretty much every street corner. There’s not a massive amount going on here, which makes it perfect for a peaceful few days. I don’t think you’d need longer than 3-4 days otherwise I think you’d get a bit bored, but it’s definitely worth a visit.
