Ilse, a childhood friend of mine, once found a raspberry in the camp and carried it in her pocket all day to present it to me that night on a leaf.
Imagine a world in which your entire possession is one raspberry and you give it to your friend.
Did some exploring with elligoestoboston this weekend. We saw the Blue Man Group went to the New England Holocaust Memorial, as well as the Quincy Market and Downtown.
Ich hatte ein wundervolles Wochenende in Boston. Samstag gab es leider wieder Schneeregen, Ende März, was Sightseeing quasi unmöglich machte. Wir waren bei der Blue Man Group, in einer typisch amerikanischen Mall und natürlich in der Cheesecake Factory. Zum Abendessen gab es dann Sushi - ich vermisse mein wöchentliches Sushi so wahnsinnig. :D
Sonntag hatten wir zum Glück Sonne pur! So konnten wir uns den Quincy Market und Boston Downtown anschauen. Das Zentrum von Boston ist so unglaublich schön und perfekt, um alles zu Fuß abzulaufen.
It’s a bit of a depressing day in Boston (gloomy, rainy, and the museum switched to Summer Hours) so I thought a depressing picture was in order.
This is the stone at the entrance to the New England Holocaust Memorial in downtown Boston (with some snapseed editing).
The memorial is one of the most beautiful things - six glass towers, each representing a concentration camp with 1 million numbers etched into the glass to honor those who perished. Quotations from those who lived and died are placed throughout, and steaming grates are located on the walkway that runs through the towers. Amazing that such a peaceful memorial represents the atrocities committed during WWII
