Jon and I took an afternoon trip to Boston today to get Jon's student ID and parking pass. It was unbelievably hot out!
Despite the intense heat, people were everywhere! Pedestrians, runners, bikers -- people in cars, trucks, etc!
We also drove from MIT to Harvard Square - both in Cambridge, 1.4 miles from each other and it added an additional 2 hours to our journey!!! There was so much traffic. Luckily, we found a parking space in front of the Japanese store I was looking for, so parking wasn't a problem. But, there was so much congestion that getting through lights took forever. People were blocking intersections, making wrong turns, breaking down. -- We were so glad to get on the highway and return to NH - even if the traffic was slow on 93.
We found the little Japanese store that we were looking for and I found some bento (lunch box) supplies for the girls' lunches. Mission accomplished, although next time, I think I will shop online.
