‘tinerant Tuesday

I firmly believe that the best way to get to know a city is to wander around. With that in mind, I strolled around downtown Boston, picking up a pocket-sized fold-out map and various brochures from the Visitor Information Center and a bottle of Noodler's Ink from a wonderful little pen shop on Bromfield. I also took the opportunity to pass by the Free Software Foundation. RMS was out, but I met John Sullivan and gave him a hug for working on Planner. (I'd forgotten to bake gluten-free cookies for him. Oops.) I also walked around the park, wandered over to the public library, and bought a pattern and some cloth from Walmart.

Boston is pretty, with plenty of trees and beautiful brick buildings lining narrow, winding roads. It is thus all too easy to get lost in, not because the streets are difficult to locate on a map (they're clearly labelled) but because wandering around without any particular aim is so pleasant. =)
