We're on our way home now in the taxi. Soon we'll be back to see Alex and Laura which will be great even if it means I get washed! (eurgh). Lots of traffic though. Here's a pic of me seeing the first ever boston Africa festival! We heard a Boston senator speak. He got us to say "we are all African people" which is true really for all the people, and giraffes too!

Apparently iPads aren't made for giraffes. The touch didn't work. The apple store was very nice though.


The Boston T has pictures of penguins from the aquarium! Some of them are very naughty.


It's a very good bookshop and has free wifi, so I can blog! Also it's air conditioned, which is good because I was getting sweaty behind the ears.

Only a day until we get back to Laura and Alex!

Harvard Square

It's all very exciting, we're in the Harvard Square coop bookshop snacking!

Checking out!

We're off for fun & frolics I'm Boston and them home to see Laura! Here's me with the reception bear!

I've not been out of the hotel room a lot - John's been working - but he promises adventures at the weekend! I have got a present for Laura though. Luckily it was half price, and giraffes can afford things that are half price.

Houghton Mill

Today I'm at a mill to see how flour is made.

It's raining, but the swans are happy!


Bird Watching

I'm in a hide on the fens looking at important birds. They had orange
legs & long beaks.

Blog Jacking!

Alex is back taking over Melmans blog while he's in America. Maybe
he'll post too? Anyway. Yesterday I saw Bees do Work!


Colonial Inn

Here I am at Concord's famous Colonial Inn! The war of independence broke out just around the corner. It dates back to 1716 and it's creaky but fun!

Very exciting! That's it there.

Now why didn't that work?

At the airport!

I'm off to Boston! I just met a very friendly 6ft tall Harrods door bear in the departure lounge.
