beantown and la belle province 5: bunker hill, brits and brazilian bites
Charlestown Bridge (aka North Washington Street Bridge).
City Square, where giant fish watched every move I made. A phoenix may be a more appropriate symbol, given the square's ability to resurrect itself from invasions, fires and elevated freeways.
Bunker Hill. I arrived too late to climb up the 221' obelisk but found the site was great for observing the neighbourhood, shooting postcard-style pictures and capturing 233-year old grievances.
Davis Square in Somerville, mostly due to a dim memory of a CD store I blew a bundle at years ago. No sign of the store, but I browsed the neighbourhood for a few minutes. The square is dotted with statues based on local residents that were erected in the 1980s as part of the MBTA's Arts on the Line public art program.
Any guesses as to what this man was not?
Churrascaria Rodeo, a Brazilian steakhouse near the hotel. Not feeling up to non-stop barbecue, I ordered a dish I rarely pick while dining out - steak.
