Day off - Boston

This really was a day off for pretty much everybody which we all made the most of. Got up late, long leisurely breakfast and a stroll round Boston. Ended up spending several hours in a bookshop over at Harvard Square which is about as pleasant a way to spend an afternoon as I can think of.

In the evening Polly Harvey and her tour group invited us to a ten pin bowling tournament, complete with beer, pizza and stylish footwear. Bowling's such fun. Its trickier than it looks, but I love the fact that the aim of the game is so simple - chuck this at them and try to knock over as many as possible... We had a good time and I did OK - as long as I can break 100 points per game I feel like I haven't let the side down entirely.

I was planning on resurrecting the tour diary today, being the day we were scheduled to fly to Auckland for the load-in tomorrow. However, its now old news that the remainder of the tour dates have been postponed, so Im not going anywhere further than the corner cafe. Its been a very weird week indeed - much akin to driving into a wall.
