Boston, one last time around: A final batch of photos from my trip.

So, in last night’s post, a photographic retrospective on my recent research trip to Boston, I promised it would be the last Boston-trip-related article. However, my husband liked the photos so much that he twisted my arm to post some more. Thus, I must ask your indulgence one more time for some more photos from the revolutionary city.

Enjoy!
