On August 1st, I moved to Boston, MA for medical school (more on that at a later date). Here are some things I have noticed about the city so far, especially my neighborhood, the South End:
-Friendly traffic enforcement agents...!
-Lots of one-way streets, many of which inexplicably switch direction midway.
-Lots of BAKERIES of all sorts
-Many rats (thankfully, not spotted inside any building)
-Luckily, the city is very walkable, because in comparison to good 'ole NYC, the public transportation sucks.
-Street names in New England are very literal (ie there's a playground on "playground street," a school on "school street"...you get the idea)
-Cape Cod is CLOSE.
-Everyone went to Harvard.
To be continued...
