So during my February break off from school, I went down to Boston with my mom via commuter rail. My father of course encouraged us not to due to fear of the MBTA not being fully functioning after winter storm Juno, but we went anyways. We had a fun time traveling to different sites in Boston on the T.
My mom has lived in New England since 1985, when the company she was working for relocated from SoCal, which is where she met my father who also had to relocate with the company. In those 30 years since moving out here, my mother had never visited the New Engand Aquarium. Until, that is, I brought her there to visit. She was like a little kid there!
My mom said her favorite exhibit were the penguins. If you are unfamiliar with the NEAQ, there are three different penguin exhibits. One with rockhopper penguins, one with African penguins, and one with little blue penguins.
We had lunch in Chinatown and we ate dinner in the North End. It ended up being a fantastic day and the highlight of my vacation. I dunno if that’s saying much since I sat on my butt the rest of vacation.
