Boston, Massachusetts, 1998

WE WERE IN Boston back in August 1998 (7th-9th August). Boston is the capital of the US state of Massachusetts, as well as the largest city of the US.

We went there to visit a friend, FF. On this trip we were reunited with another, RA, in what I always describe as a classic tale of FATE. (link)

At Boston University with FF who just completed her postgraduate studies; bumped into hubby’s and my mutual friend RA on the street in Boston!


We grew up watching the sitcom “Cheers”, so a visit is a must! The call card from Penang Restaurant in Boston where we enjoyed a meal with RA and FF.


We went to Harvard too, ermm, merely passing through 🙂 (Bottom, L-R) Harvard Hall; the statue of John Harvard.

Massachusetts State House (built 1795), located in Beacon Hill, is part of the Freedom Trail.
