Flick of the Week | 3.27.11

Last weekend, there was a "supermoon" out on a clear night. I got a chance to view it from Memorial Drive in Cambridge. I liked looking at different photos from around the world, but this was one of my favorites, shot by gienkhan:

I went to Brooklyn last week to visit my friend Hillary. We did a photo walk around town and we came across Cranberry Street. I couldn't walk by without taking a picture of Hillary under the sign for the simple reason that she loves cranberry juice. We used to live together and she drank it like it was water!

Flick of the Week | 03.04.11

This is a picture of my Nana, whose birthday was March 4, and cousin Kristen several years ago on Easter. I love the expression on my grandmother's face, I bet she was saying something like "Oh my goodness" or "Oh golly" in response to Kristen's story!

The Boston Massacre Reenactment

One of my favorite things about Boston is the rich history of this city. While I could definitely do without the snowy frigid winters, the potholes, and the traffic, I'm really thankful to have grown up in one of the oldest cities in the US. It definitely made US History class much more interesting with a home town advantage.


I'm really happy that the city makes so much of the history accessible to locals and tourists as well. Many  attractions are free or at least offer special days and times with discounted rates. A great example is this weekend's reenectment of the Boston Massacre.


Two hundred forty-one years ago this coming Saturday, the Boston Massacre took place--setting America on the road to revolution and independence. Starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday, the Old State House will commemorate the momentous act with a variety of events: a childrens' reenactment, "Trial of the Century" recreation of the soldiers' trial, and finally, at 7 p.m., the full reenactment. 
Here is the reenactment from 2007:
