BOSTON...

It was not long back when I used to write for a travelogue... strange as it may sound  I actually had forgotten about this .almost ... but about a week back when we were planning a trip to Boston on a  Labor day weekend, it struck me ....Hey! I can actually write a travelogue on my blog itself,Now with the realization in place ..I seriously am so excited about this!!!!!!.... What would be different this  time,.. that it would be less of stats , and  more about my experience and my views about the places I visit or have visited.


So here I go  with my first posting...and this is about  Boston ( I just visited this labor day weekend),...


Home to Harvard University and MIT....Boston is a small but not so small University township which has over the years grown and now is a host to a bunch of fortune 500 companies of the world, apart from being the proud owner of one of the World's best University,  
Boston is Scenic, Colorful, artsy and serene....it has 9 man made parks which are termed as Emerald Necklace and they add to the natural beauty of the place, apart from being good recreational place for everybody. Boston Would be to a tourist, The Harvard Square , University area, North End Water Front Marina, Chinatown , Quincy Market, and the black bay! there must be some more which I may be missing.. 
Here's a glimpse of Boston as I see it...


The famous Quincy market of Boston , 

it has almost 300 shops..including eateries of all types and countries and art shops and all the brands ...






                              Rows of eateries .. which includes our own Bombay Club...





Boston Water Front Marina....is a beautiful sea shore, in the North End...you can take a walk till the end of the shore and see the beautiful sunrise and sunsets, there are food joints nearby where you can sit in the open and have drink or two ..and there are also activities for the children like a carousel and sprinklers...the idea is to have Fun!!





 

One of nine Parks in the Emerald Necklace..it is very soothing to just sit and relax here or take pictures while the kids can have fun in the sprinklers , parks are open till late in the night..
Harvard Book store at Harvard Square in the University Area...Harvard University is one if the busiest and oldest areas of Boston...the crowd is young and energetic.... and includes both  the students and the tourists.



Below is the Harvard University Campus and the Statue of John Harvard where almost at all times there is a queue of tourists to get photographed with the first benefactor of the oldest institution of higher learning in United States.



And there is the MIT campus nearby and Harvard Law School and many more ...It is actually very difficult to explore the entire campus and Boston itself in two days , specially when the idea of vacation ( for somebody like me) is to relax and laze , but all in all Boston is Fun...!!

.go see and visit yourself to capture more... :) until then 

see ya soon again..
