REVOLUTIONARY TALES – BOSTON , MASSACHUSETTS – COPLEY SQUARE AND THE BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY .

The  five  of  you  have  left  your  hotel  and  are  walking  towards  Copley  Square  on  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Boston .

Copley  Square  happens  to  be  the  finish  line  of  the  Boston  Marathon .

Across  from  Copley  Square  is  one  of  the  oldest  libraries  in  the  country ,  the  Boston  Public  Library .  You  all  heard  the  interior  of  the  library  is  very  beautiful  and  historical .

The  five  of  you  want  to  see  this .

You  all  walk  up  the  stairs  after  you’ve  already  gone  through  security .

The  staircase  is  marble .

The  five  of  you  gasp  as  you  see  a  lion  crouched  on  one  of  those  marble  pillars .

It’s  not  a  real  lion ,  of  course .

Written  on  one  of  the  pillars  are  some  of  the  Civil  War  battles  fought  by  Massachusetts  Regiments .

Even  your  girlfriend  who  kept  cutting  American  History  classes  knew  many  of  these  battles .

Guess  she  didn’t  find  learning  about  the  Civil  War  ”  boring  ” .

The  five  of  you  can’t  take  out  any  books  at  the  library ,  but  all  of  you  have  identification  from  California ,  which  allows  you  all  to  use  one  of  the  free  computers  to  check  on  your  emails .

As  you  all  continue  to  walk ,  one  of  the  girls  notices  the  John  Hancock  Building ,  the  old  and  new  one .

All  five  of  you  interned  here  at  one  time  or  another  while  you  were  in  college .

You  all  leave  the  library  and  notice  that  a  Farmer’s  Market  is  going  on .

The  entire  square  in  front  of  of  the  massive  Trinity  Church  is  full  of  vendors  selling  all  sorts  of  food  items ,  not  to  mention  beverages .

The  lettuce  and  tomato  stands  look  the  most  appealing  to  the  five  of  you .

The  vendor  at  one  of  the  stands  tells  you  that  it’s   $  1.50  for  the  bags  of  Romaine  Lettuce  that  she  has  neatly  packaged  in  frozen  bags .

They  look  freshly  washed ,  so  the  five  of  you  buy  lettuce  to  go  with  the  tomatoes  that  two  of  you  brought .

You  can’t  beat  that .

You  all  move  onto  another  table  where  a  vendor  is  selling  quinoa  with  Mediterranean  Salad  and  topped  with  Feta  Cheese  and  Tomatoes .

The  vendor  tells  you  that  it’s  $  3.50 ,  and  he  adds  that  he’s  flavored  it  with  some  lemon  juice .

You  really  aren’t  a  fan  of  Quinoa ,  but  he  had  you  at  Feta  Cheese  and  Tomatoes .

He  gives  you  sample ,  as well  as  the  other  girls .

You  all  decide  to  buy  some ,  because  not  only  does  it  look  good ,  it  tastes  good ,  too .

As  your  hotel  isn’t  that  far  from  Copley  Square ,  the  five  of  you  are  going  to  have  your  Farmer’s  Market  lunch  there .

You’ll  decide  where  your  next  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Boston  is  going  to  be  later .
