Taylor Today was a little travel day. Grandpa, Dakota, Anna and I traveled down from longville MN. Everyone in the car fell asleep but grandpa and he was the driver. After we got to Lisa's house we had to combine the clothes to make the 5 of us fit all of are clothes in 2 suitcases. We did it! Than Jen came and picked us up and when she got out of the car she said that it was national pick day, so we had to take a picture of us all in pink. We got to the airport, than we all had luch Anna, Grandpa, and Taylor had Chinese food and Dakota , and Lisa had Toco bell.

Bonjour à tous Pour les puristes. hier c' était 230 km. J' ai eu des remarques. Bravo, vous suivez bien. En me levant ce matin, j'avais une idée en tête, me rendre à l'université d' Harvard et à l' université de Cambridge au MIT (Massachussetts Institute of Technology), pour déposer mon inscription. Je décide de m'y rendre a pied, renseignements pris c'est à 5 km environ, et en regardant ma carte, je vois que sur le parcours il y a plein de choses intéressantes a voir. Oui je fais parti des ces vieux c.. qui utilisent une carte, et pas une apli. Avec un IPhone, j' aurais raté plein de petites choses superbes. Je l'aurais tourné dans tous les sens, comme ma carte, j' ai vu faire les touristes. La seul chose que j' aurais eu, ... read more

Bonjour a tous Parlons du souper d'hier au soir, j' ai quitté l' hôtel a pied, pour marcher un peu, et me rendre sur le vieux port de Portland, je suis rentré dans un restaurant en terrasse sur le quai, un monde fou, de la musique, super sympa, une clientèle agréable et, cerise sur le gâteau, a la carte "macaroni et homard gratiné au fromage". Plus d'hésitation je fonce. Je pense qu' il y avait plus de homard que de macaroni. Un régal et le mot est faible. le prix une misère 15$ car l' assiette était énorme. Les 3 km de retour, a pied, n' étaient pas de trop. Ce matin de l'essence pour le char. J' étais sur la réserve depuis un certain temps et pas de station, j' ai vraiment commencé a flipper. ... read more

Train from NYP to Boston Rhode Island from the train window: snow, in piles, on the ground, dirty but hanging on. The bus to Barnstables showed more of the same. I was lulled into thinking it was Spring all over and did not dress appropriately. Thankfully I can remedy that, but I can’t change this cold, cloudy, dreary weather mood. Byllye Avery did that-changed my attitude, her delight at seeing me made me joyful and glowing in remembering our history. And N’Gina was so welcoming and pampering. Their home is a warm, welcoming, artful space that they share generously. We ate well, smoked well and enjoyed each other. I was sent off with a care package of sandwich and fruit.... read more

It's 23.46 on Saturday 21st March. Today has been a relatively low key day - so there is not all that much to report. We woke latish, around 9.30, at breakfasted in the usual manner. We were all ready pretty swiftly today, so were able to leave the hostel by around 10.45. From the hostel we headed down past the park to the closest subway stop, and out West of the city to the university district for a little exploration. The area we ended up in, around Boston University, was nice enough a but there wasn't a huge amount going on, so we found a little coffee shop and grabbed some lunch From there, the time being around 2pm, we boarded the tram to take us back into Boston. The tram got about 2 stops before ... read more
