Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but the hotel I’m staying has the worst wifi I’ve ever had, I had to jump through so many hoops to be able to make a new post. Well, I’m in Boston, and so far, I’ve gotten 7 things done, quite a lot for my usual standard.
2. See/Go to the ocean
34. See a strange animal
43. Go to a museum
48. Go to Dave and Buster’s
64. Get an airbrushed hat
68. Go to another state
92. Take a boat ride
Well, lets start with the obvious. #68. Go to another state. That was obvious because I live in New York and Boston is, you know…., in Massachusetts.
#2 and #92 were basically the perfect examples of killing two birds with one stone. Once we got into Boston past all the traffic, and finally into the harbor and the aquarium, we bought our tickets for the Codzilla. The Codzilla is a high speed boat that seats about 85 people. It starts as a tour, until you get further out into the harbor, which is when it switches from a nice tour of the Boston harbor to an experience almost like a water coaster. The only difference being that the captain of the boat takes sharp turns, and the water that gets you soaking wet is satly, not chlorinated. But honestly, best experience by far.
#48. After getting soaking wet, we paid our extremely high parking fee of $35 for only an hour and a half, and took another clueless drive a half hour south of Boston to Braintree, where my new favorite place was waiting for me. Dave and Buster’s is a restaurant, but it also has arcade games. Not the little arcade games like Pacman (although, you can play the Pacman classic there), but bigger games. Giant Connect 4, Fruit Ninja on TV screens, giant basketball shooting games, everything. It was amazing. It’s like a Chuck E. Cheese, but for adults. Even better, the Yankees Red Sox game was on, and in Boston, what better way to make people stare at you like you have 3 heads than to wear your Yankees gear. We wore our baseball hats, and watched the Yankees beat the Red Soc 6-4. Good night(:
#34 and #43. I figured I’d combine the two because they happened at the same place, the aquarium. We got to the aquarium at about 10, and it was already getting busy. As the day progressed, it only got worse. Honestly, there weren’t many people I could tolerate in the aquarium by 1pm. No one said excuse me, they all pushed and shoved you, and despite the giant NO STROLLERS sign, you could barely walk around because of, can you guess? Strollers, everywhere. So many were empty. I think the parents reasoning would be “Just in case little Johnny gets tired and doesn’t wanna run all over the aquarium” , which little Johnny never got tired, and never used the stroller, making it a waste. But there were some cool things. Penguins, sharks, seals, rays. You could actually pet the rays (my strange animal, by the way). They feel slimey, almost like when you open a new pair of contacts for the first time and go to take them out of the little case they come in.
#64 Last but not least, my airbrushed hat. I got it Thursday night, back at home, but couldn’t get to a computer before we left. As you may have already guessed, it has a One Direction logo on it. It’s just amazing.
Since my wifi here is being shitty, I’ll post a picture of the Codzilla, the aquarium, and my hat when I get home tommorow. Promise(:
