Back and forth I went, like a damn ping-pong ball. But I couldn't think of any other way.
I started at the Government Center Parking Garage, ready to pay a fortune for the privilege of fighting traffic into the city for an hour and being able to do it all again later in the day. I know, bitch, bitch, bitch.
From the garage, I headed for the North End, or the very edge of it, and a meeting at 251 Causeway Street. We talked about Minot's Light, and some upcoming projects I'll be wrapping myself into. From there, I walked back across town, back past the JFK Federal Building and City Hall Plaza, up Devonshire Street - past the Minot Building - to Winthrop Square. After another meeting there on a current book project, it was back up Devonshire for lunch with Michelle at Pizzeria Regina in Fanueil Hall.
I then headed back up Devnonshire, past a crowd gathering for a tour of Boston's American Revolution landmarks from the Old State House. I shook things up with a few twists, up Spring, past the Old South Meeting House, down Milk, up Arch. I found it hilarious that Water and Milk run next to each other.
I finished up at Twenty Winthrop Square and headed back down Devonshire, through Mayor Curley park and to the garage.
Phew. No wonder my feet hurt. Thatsallotta pavement.
