I have a confession to make, I have been coming to Boston for how long now? I still don’t know how to put the separate parts of Boston together in one cohesive block in my head, so I still get lost very easily when it comes to getting from point A to point B.

I don’t know if it’s because Boston isn’t set on a perpendicular grid like New York City or if my powers of orientation are getting extremely deficient, but I get confused and turned around amazingly quickly. Oh, I forgot to add that on top of everything else it was pouring rain today so not only was I trying to listen to the nice lady feeding me directions through the GPS, but I had to deal with the torrential downpour that renders everyone into a horrible driver. Wait I forgot something else, highway 93 was getting flooded while I was on the road trying to navigate my way through Boston. All in all what should have been an hour ride became a three and a quarter of an hour drive and I still never got to the destination programmed into the GPS. My hubby met me after all that time, twenty miles shy of where I should have ended up, he felt bad about all that traffic so we met at a Starbucks and I got a cafe latte for my troubles.

I love the city of Boston but I still need to do my homework in getting to know her ins and outs on the road.
