A Day in Boston

Boston, Massachusetts is just a couple of hours away from Maine. However, it's not very often that I get the chance to visit it. I can come up with 2 reasons -  traffic and traffic.
It's a good thing that I have a friend who loves to drive and doesn't really mind traffic. Well, not as much as I do.

This is in fact my 2nd visit to this gorgeous city since I migrated here in the US. One thing I like about it is the architecture of the city.
We went there the day after the Boston Marathon so the spirit of the race is still strong indeed.
The reason for this day trip to Boston was to go to the New England Aquarium and check out a couple of Asian store for our stash.
The Aquarium is amazing. I was in awe to see all the magnificent creatures. I had fun watching the fishes and the people alike.
 The Aquarium sits right by the waterfront so the view outside is a sight to behold.
There is more to Boston than the Aquarium and the Museums. And since our time there was so limited we only got the chance to see very little of the famous city. But since it is only a couple of hours away, I will surely be back and explore it some more.
After the fun-filled adventure at the Aquarium we went to our equally important itinerary - lunch and comfort food shopping at the Asian store in Quincy.
