So ok, I've finally arrived in Beantown, Boston that is, last Saturday. It's was loooooooooooooong flight I tell you. This is what I hate about travelling to this part of the world - the plane ride is just damn too long. I mean I love Boston and all but imagine your ass getting numb upon getting off. And topping that, the flight was pretty bumpy. Hmmm... must be air pocket season.

Anyways, when we touched down and finally got my bag from the carousel, I waited outside Terminal E for my friends to pick me up. I was kinda expecting a sweet breeze of cold air to wisp by my face but lo and behold --- a familiar hot, muggy air greeted me! Just like back home! New England summer is really what you expect them to be - unpredictable. One moment it's muggy, then other times it's wet! But I don't have to fret actually. I'm always at home to this kind of weather. I'm a Filipino for hell's sake!

I haven't gone out much since I arrived. But I'm planning to walk around the city this weekend. I want to immerse in the culture again. Y'know, watch street performers at Faneuil Hall, people-watch at Boston Common, sip coffee at a local shop in Beacon Hill and watch the sunset across the Esplanade.

I'm glad my job is getting me to these places. Next stop will be the west coast, then South Korea. But before that, I'll have a New England Clam Chowda first.
