Monday was Martin Luther King day and we decided to take advantage of the long weekend and drive up to Boston.
After about 8 hours, we were there.
We took a short walk before meeting with friends for dinner.
I found out we were going to a seafood place and I started panicking, but then I remembered that fries always save the day. :)
And the Boston cream pie was very good too.
On Sunday morning, we went to Boston Common and the Public Garden again. It was freezing, but taking pictures is much easier during the day.
On and on we walked...
...up until it was time for brunch. There are many things I can't get used to when it comes to American cuisine (see: bloody steaks, mussels, crabcakes etc.), but brunch is unbeatable. I stuck to my usual pancakes, bacon and coffee, but someone else ordered his favorite eggs Benedict. (They look great, but there's too much yolk for my taste in there!)
Warmed up and caffeinated, we did a little browsing at a couple of shops.

We got there after an hour and rewarded ourselves with cupcakes.
Then, we strolled around the Harvard campus.
Back to the hotel for a cup of tea...
... before heading out for dinner in Little Italy, where I finally tried cannoli, which tasted great! The restaurant was already decorated for Valentine's Day, and it was really cute, but I was too hungry to take pictures.
I found this while walking, though.
Then a short walk near Quincy market and it was time to call it a day.
Mini breakfast at a small cafe before starting our 8-hour drive back on Monday morning...
...and a beautiful sunset on Monday evening.
Although I was there for only a day, Boston seemed very cozy and quiet and I liked it a lot.
Enjoy the week!
