When I first stepped out of the airport I was amazed; outside there were many towering skyscrapers and the night was illuminated in yellows and reds (this was about 7 o'clock at night in America, and 2am in England, so needless to say I was very tired). The lights hurt my eyes, but on the bright side, it was so beautiful despite me being more of a countryside-lover. I've never been in such a big American city before!
On the first day we went from across the hotel and into a local park, called Memorial Park, if I remember correctly. My whole family were messing around, so I was snap-happy and took a lot of photos.

|Just Batman in the park|
|Batman lost his batmobile and had to settle for this instead.|
|Why yes, I do find fire hydrants fascinating...We don't have any in England. XD|
|Harbor on a sunny day.|
|Boston Red Sox|
|Across the water.|
|Some... monument... (I couldn't hear the tour guide very well)|
|Beantown Trolley Sightseeing.|
The tour guide/driver we had was really funny, especially about the whole Civil war thing, and changed "British" to "Indonesian" so as not to offend my family! (we wouldn't have been offended, anyway) When we got off the bus he said "The British are leaving, the British are leaving!"
We stopped at the Prudential Centre for shopping and my favourite place was Barnes & Nobels, despite being enamored with kindles. I bought two classical books in hard back editions - Dracula and Grimm's Fairytales - ones that I had been eying in England but didn't buy, as everything is so expensive at home.
