In March 2013, a good friend of ours was finishing off his doctorate at MIT in Boston. Obviously, we had to go and visit him, steal him away from his work as much as possible and have a grand old time in the USA. I was the lone female in a group of four to five ‘adult’ (the word calls for more mature candidates, I’m sure) men. – Camille
I did it. I bought an e-reader. A little Nook, with Glowlight, so as to read in the dark. Yay! Can’t wait till I figure out what all it can do. Only thing I don’t really like is that the account has to be linked up to a VISA card. Which means The Boyfriend will get to see each and every book I buy. Hmm. There has got to be a way around that… Fun fact: I bought it from this nice girl who was born in Ghent. Small world, huh? (note: Nook is linked to Barnes & Noble and the site only lets you order e-books if you’ve got an American IP-address. This has cost me much swearing, blood and tears, but it’s cooperating now. The e-reader itself works like a charm, though.)
Other than that: we visited the aquarium (or, more specifically, the gift shop, as the aquarium was too expensive), went for a walk around the harbour (which was beautiful) and went to the Boston Tea Party Ship and Museum. Of course, the museum had just closed off, so once again we went to the gift shop (really, it’s as if they don’t want us to visit the museums around here).
Tomorrow, we’re off to NY. Go Greyhound!
