Boston's T is a bit more confusing than DCs metro, but still easy enough to figure out. All the cities I know of have trains routes of various colors and each color goes from point A to B with various stops in between. Boston's green line goes from point A to points B, C, D, or E, so you just have to really pay attention to where you are going. This morning I got the 1 day pass for $9 and have put it to good use.
I started in Boston Common and walked the entire freedom trail. I actually lost sight of it for a while, but once I knew what to look for it became easier.
After that I found a cute little cafe with yummy pannini. Like Chicago, Boston seems to be a city where I can survive on pannini. I don't know what it is about pannini but I love it. After lunch I took the T to Cambridge. It wasn't in my original plan, but something about vacation makes me incapable of rest and relaxation. I want to see as much as possible. Cambridge was okay...it reminds me of a smaller much more compact version of Boston. Harvard was all right also...it was cool to see a school so old and famous and being surrounded by super smart people. I was feeling really tired so I consumed massive amounts of sugar in the form of a frozen mocha and brownie. Yummy.
Aaaww, it's thundering. Oh well, I'll go change into some pants and then I'm off to Fenway Park. A little rain never hurt anyone, and I can rest and relax when I get home next Friday. ;)
