The Galitz Journal for friends and family
It was only an hour flight to Boston. The flight was just long enough for me to finish the Air Tran magazine’s crossword puzzle. We arrived around 1 pm and took a taxi from the airport to our hotel which was 7 miles away.
Our Amerisuite hotel room is pretty fancy. It has wrap around couch, a 42 inch plasma tv and free wireless internet.
Earl’s complaining that it’s silly of me to take his picture.
Nina’s husband, Danny, needed a nap desperately so Earl deferred his immediate desire to check out the town. We ended up going out for late lunch / early dinner around 3 pm. Nina decided to stay in and nurse her cold.
So we took a nice walk around Medford, Massachussets founded in 1630.
Earl & Marisa with the Cherry Tree. Spring comes later here…
Earl thinks Medford’s cute with its juxaposition of run down and revitalized sections
Downtown had lots of Asian cuisine — Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai plus two donut shoppes. Of course, with Earl we ended up eating at Chilli-Garden Sichuan Chinese Restaurant where he got sliced Lamb with Leeks. Danny got the House Special Chicken with Dried Peppers — which was very good for raising one’s body temperature. There was plenty of food to share so I didn’t order anything other than a large hot and sour soup.
On the way back we stopped at the ubiquitous CVS so Danny could get a tube of toothpaste. Got some drinks for our hotel fridge and other snacks.
