A Beautiful City

Friday 18th September 2009. Toronto - Boston.

The band entourage is staying in Toronto until Sunday, but a few of us wanted to get to Boston sooner, so took a commercial flight today. We experimented with flying from Toronto City Airport, a small commuter hub on an island in the body of water right next to the gig. It involved taking a short ferry ride to get to the aeroplane, which was novel. In Boston the U.S. immigration hall was deserted which was a major bonus and rather compensated for Chicago last week.

Boston's a beautiful city and it's good to have a few days here, as it's been a while (other than for the Sommerville theatre show at the beginning of the year which was a complete and utter flypast). I have some friends who'd come in for the gig so we found each other and spent a very pleasant low key evening. Strolling, mild weather, twilight, all good.
