We flew out of Raleigh at 10:30am. Coincidence of all coincidences, I sat beside one of my old colleagues from High Point at the gate. He was heading to Boston for a conference, and we were heading to Boston for a 9 hour layover. Woohoo! Anyway, here's a pic of us with our massive backpacks.
Because we're procrastinators, we spent a good two hours in the Boston airport ripping off the free WiFi and attending to some last minute business. One agenda item was to call the City of Durham to have our water turned off for three months. The city worker I spoke to either didn't hear me or wasn't paying attention and I got a call two hours later from the maintenance worker to confirm that I wanted water disconnected from Voyager Academy in Durham. No. No, that is not what I wanted. If the poor kids at that school didn't have water today, my sincere apologies. 😉 Off to a strong start.
We then headed into the city to pass the time by walking around Boston's "Little Italy." Hirsh saw one of his old business school classmates, too! What a small world!!
