Boston - The 2nd Adventure

The New England Diaries.


During our second adventure in Boston, we visited the JFK Presidential Library and Museum.  We had an hiliarious and delicious dinner at P.F. Chang's China Bistro and spent an evening at the theatre experiencing the controlled lunacy of the Blue Man Group.  Do join Back Chat on a wonderful day in Boston.

On a rainy day in June we visited the JFK Presidential Library and Museum.  The sight of that splendid concrete building with its majestic glass pavilion was triumphal.  The great Chinese American architect, I.M.Pei,  who designed the library, was the personal choice of Jackie Kennedy's.  She picked him from a bevy of major talents because in her view he had the imagination and promise to realise her vision for the project.  I love his startling glass pyramid above the Louvre in Paris and was overjoyed at the prospect of seeing more of his work.

Boston: The First Adventure.

The New England Diaries. 

Happily settled in our amazing billet in Seekonk, Eugene and I were constantly delighted by its close proximity to some of the great cities in that north eastern corner of the United States.  Robin and James remained unfazed by distances or the prospect of driving those distances.  So a distance of 80 kilometres (50 miles) from Providence to Boston was dismissed as a mere bagatelle.  During our time in New England, we would visit Boston three times, each time an adventure.
