The Freedom Trail...and the drag show

Boston, United States

So our first day in Boston we once again to attack it with as much energy as we could muster! After walking through china town to South station to book our tickets to Philly we ambled over to Boston Common to begin the freedom trail. We started full of energy looking at each landmark ( although since we didnt buy a guide not quite sure what everything was), sticking closely to the bricked or painted red line on the floor. After 2 hours and a few Miles we ended at Bunkers Hill Monument over the other side of a very questionable bridge. We had seen 16 of the countrys most historic monuments at this point...apparently! On the way back to the hostel we thought that a drink would be well deserved so we stopped at the friendly neighbourhood cheers bar!! After a quick drink we headed back to the hostel for a shower n change before we went out with the hostel to a drag show (although im pretty sure sunil sneaked to the pub to watch the baseball while i showered). So we arrived at a bar called jaques in a quiet(er) area of Boston and and sat down ordered drinks and prepared for the show. The russian drag queen 'Katya' was hilarious as was Becca Le Bus. Believe me I do have pictures to follow just struggling to get them up right now!! After a good night at the show we ambled back to the hostel through a scarily quiet college town, to a disturbingly loud room, where all 3 of our roommates were snoring so loud i slept with loud music on to drown it out and a pillow over my head!! Bye for now x
