Duck tour and more

We had a fairly uncomfortable sleep last night--we would come to Boston on the hottest day of the year, and there is no A/C. So sleeping on an arrived was kind of hot and sticky. We got up pretty early and walked to the subway stop, then rode two subways to the Prudential Center (which happens to be where Gary came to a conference last January). We had breakfast at Au Bon Pain (that's French for El Buen Pan, as Andrew's Latina friends say) then went on a "Duck Tour." Ducks are WWII amphibious truck/bus things. The tour was about an hour and a half, all around Boston and then all around inside the Charles River basin. It was pretty fun.

While doing this, Andrew's cell phone rang and he didn't answer it, but when he checked it later it was his (potential) new employer saying they needed an updated resume by 2pm. So we took the two subways home and Andrew got busy getting it revised and sent out. Then I trimmed his hair, ironed a skirt, and we went off to hear a Nobel prize winner give a lecture at the KSG forum. (Very cool building, BTW.) And now I'm in the library of that building, blogging. Gary just took a photo, but since I don't have a digital camera, I can't post the proof just yet!

Then it was a reception at a fancy room, then off to a dinner at a guy's house who invites Christians over once a week and gives them a fancy meal. He's a millionaire, sits on the boards of a number of philanthropic organizaitons. Then it started raining, but when we started walking home it pretty much quit. Now I need to iron Andrew's gown.
