Mindless Escapism 2

Boston - I have done this redeye thing a couple of times in the past, but this time it feels a bit more surreal than before. I think I know what Bill Murray's character felt like in Lost In Translation.

I asked Evan where he would like to go for Spring Break, and this is what he said. Tuesday at 6 PM we pulled out of GJ and arrived at DIA at about 10. Straight to the check-in counter, and 90 minutes later on a flight mostly packed with Junior Olympians headed back home from Aspen.

Got about an hour's sleep before arriving in Boston. Evan and I ate breakfast and spent the rest of the day in recovery mode. Went out to have dinner, then went to see Blue Man Group. Very interesting and entertaining. If you can get to see them somewhere it's well worth it.

Boston is an extremely accessible city; we're relying
strictly on foot power and public transportation to get around, and we'll cover a fair amount of the city tomorrow if all goes well.

Going to try to reset ourselves for tomorrow, and try to make the best of the remaining day here before continuing on to Pittsburgh on Friday. Michaela has just finished her first week of chemotherapy last week, and seems to be tolerating it well so far. It will be nice to see her and Leslie, and spend some good time together. In the meantime, there's some history to see, scenery to admire, and fresh seafood to eat.

Have a good rest of the week.
