REVOLUTIONARY TALES – BOSTON , MASSACHUSETTS – THE CHURCH OF CHRISTIAN SCIENCE .

The  quinoa  salad  with  the  Feta  Cheese  and  Tomatoes  really  hit  the  spot  for  the  five  of  you .

The  other  things  that  you  brought  from  the  Farmer’s  Market ,  the five  of  you  will  save  for  later .

You  don’t  want  to  think  about  it ,  but  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Boston  is  almost  over .

Sort  of .

You  think  you  might  stay  longer ,  but the  five  of  you  will  think  about  this  later  when  you  get  back  to  the  hotel .

Right  now  you  all  are  going  to  the  South  End neighborhood  of  Boston .

The South  End  is  not  to  be  confused  with  another  neighborhood  of  Boston ,  South  Boston ,  or  as  the  locals  know  it ,  ”  Southie . ”

You  all  might  not  get  the  chance  to  fully  visit  South  Boston ,  even though  you  all  were  close  by  it when  you  all  went  to  South  Station ,  the  Boston  transportation  hub .

South  Boston  has  one  of  the  largest  Irish  populations  in  the  world ,  next  to  Ireland  and  Northern  Ireland .

They’re  descendants  of  the  Irish  that  settled  in  the  country  during  the  Great  Potato  Famine .

They  have  one  of  the  biggest  St. Patrick’s  Day  parades  in  the  country ,  but it’s  not  held  on  March  17th ,  it’s  held the   Sunday  BEFORE .

March  17th  is  one  of  those  ”  only  in  Boston   ”  holidays  .

It’s  called  Evacuation  Day  and  its  celebrates  the  day  the  British  got  out  of  town  for  good .

The  five  of  you  keep  walking  down  Huntington  Avenue  in the  South  End ,  not  South  Boston  until  you  reach  the  headquarters  of  the  Christian  Science  Church .

The building  is a very imposing  but  very  stately  building  known  as  ”  The  Mother  Church . ”

The  five  of  you  haven’t  been  here  since  you  all  left  college ,  but  even  now ,  the  fountain  and  reflecting  pools  look  so  very  peaceful .

The  day  is  a nice  Fall  New  England  day .

It’s  not  cold  at  all .

There’s  tables  and  chairs  in  the  plaza  around  the  church  and  they  look  so  inviting  to  all  of  you .

This  is  the  perfect  place  to  sit  down  and  think  about  where  you  all  may  go  next  on  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Boston .
