Boston is much smaller than most people realize. Most of the historical sites are FREE! That is a huge bonus. You can also walk the largest part of this section as it is downtown and for anything else, the public transportation is awesome and easy to navigate. Is everyone ready? Let's get this walk started before the day is done.
I cannot be cruel! I stuck my head inside the Market and grabbed a lobster! See? We are in Boston! Let's celebrate our walk with a little lobster. Steamed and ready for a little lemon and butter. Open wide!
The fountain was a gift to the city by Gardner Brewer, which began to function for the first time on June 3, 1868. It is a copy, in bronze, of a fountain designed by French artist Liénard [Jean Auguste Edouard Liénard, most likely]. The fountain was sculpted for the Paris World's Fair of 1855 [Exposition Universelle de 1855], where it was awarded a gold medal.
I couldn't possibly let a tree like this get away from me, now could I? I know it is Wednesday and all, but, let's do a throwback day for this one and give it to @Old-Guy-Photos for #TreeTuesday. Just so you know, old man, you need to put this one in your pocket and hold on to it until next week. M'kay?

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
