Other Things

In the three blocks between our hotel and Boston's Chinatown, lay the theater district and while walking by one evening, we noticed the Blue Man Group was playing. We walked up to the ticket office and found out they still had a few tickets left for the show starting in three minutes so before we knew it, we were enjoying their performance. It was outstanding and I really enjoyed their performance. It dealt with humor and a lot of percussion which appealed to the former drummer I once was. The entire performance was nearly two hours long and felt more like twenty minutes. If you ever get a chance to see them, it is well worth the price of admission.

While making our way out towards Lexington earlier during our stay, we were passing right by Harvard so we hopped off the subway for a stroll around campus. They had a tourism office with a self guided map tour which is what we did. The map gave some information on various buildings of the university and how some of them were used during the Revolutionary War and by whom. The history was neat but the actual architecture was phenomenal. Below is their Memorial Union building built to celebrate those who died during the Civil War. You just don't see buildings like that anymore.

That was quite a find--to get tickets and to be watching Blue Man Group in 3 minutes!
