... 8230;ready? Let’s go….
I have said an infinite number of times that Wade is our social guide - and he is amazing at it. Since we have been traveling for a few many years now, we have seen and done the typical museums and tours and, my God we have been through a ton of churches (pun intended).
Anyway, this time around he was trying to give us some different things to do, maybe less typical things than what we would normally do. And as this ...

After lunch we went to the famous Charles River with incredible views of the city. There was this cross on the bridge with Hebrew around it. Something we had never seen.
