Thanksgiving, a Brit and a few parking tickets

Steve and I hosted another successful Thanksgiving dinner. Steve is an awesome cook and likes to go a bit overboard. Along with the traditional foods, we also ate homemade squash soup, lobster risotto, 2 types of cranberry sauce, and venison stuffing. Most of our guests were stuffed but managed to try some of my homemade desserts. We even had a friend, Andy, who traveled from England to experience this American holiday. I don't think he was disappointed.

The rest of the weekend was full of showing Andy the sites of Boston and stuffing him with food. We brought him to Faneuil Hall, the North End, Harvard Square, and Walmart (every foreigner needs to experience this). A bunch of us met at the North End (Italian section of Boston) for dinner on Saturday night. During dinner Andy mentioned that he would like to see parts of the Freedom Trail. As luck would have it we walked part of the trail on our way to a bar! I'm sure our founding fathers would be happy to see the Freedom Trail covered with bars and drunk college students.

To make this weekend complete, we got 2 parking tickets on Saturday. Nothing says "Welcome to Boston" than parking tickets! But, Andy had a good time and that's what counts.
