Freedom Trail (i)

If you don´t have much time in Boston, one easy option is just to go for a walk along the Freedom Trail. So that´s what I did. It was not that cold and, thankfully, it was not windy (unlike the following day...)

This was my first stop, the House of Representatives, as seen from the Boston Common.

Best investment

I've been in the USA this past week. I had the chance to visit downtown Boston quickly on Saturday right after my arrival. Although I was tired from the trip and the time difference, I forced myself to get out of the hotel and go for a quick tour. Good that I did, because I found this plaque and, maybe not my best photo ever, but I could not agree more to it.

Winter holidays

This year the winter holidays started a bit later than originally planned because of an unexpected trip to Scotland (outbound flight on Friday at midday and back in Berlin on Saturday night a week ago). There are no photos of that trip, as it was a typical business trip i.e. from the airport straight to the office, work till late, out for quick dinner, early morning start and then back to the airport and home after a stopover somewhere. I was told the day before that I would be travelling, but at least this time it was not to the other end of the world.

And now, the week of vacation is finished and it is time to get back into the routine...
