We flew to Boston this morning, in an uneventful (I finished Underground Railroad, which I loooved) and very pleasant (empty middle seat! beautiful views!) flight. We got to town in time for a nice, fall walk to the North End for seasonal cocktails (apple cider and champagne, and a cinnamon spiced wine with champagne) and a late dinner at the recommended and very busy Trattoria di Monica. We finished the evening at our Airbnb in Cambridge, with wine and cards and merriment.
