Great venue

We tried out the restaurant, Clink, for the first time this weekend.  It is the old Charles St. Jail.   It has retained the prison cell facade which gives it a unique appearance.  We loved our food choices and the service was perfect.  The waiter came just at the right time for all the courses.  We shall definitely go back.

Historical! Boston

We all know that Boston is dripping with history so when I say historical Boston I am not referring to Boston.  No, I am referring to the fact that Boston is showing the Dead Sea Scrolls.  Boston may be a small city but what an achievement - to bring the Scrolls to us here.  The Dead Sea Scrolls found in a cave on the banks of the Dead Sea by a goat herd include literary writings of the times and the oldest known texts of the Bible.  It is a truly magnificent exhibit and with the Scrolls is a wonderful collection of artifacts dating back to 1000 B.C.E.   show us details of the culture, rituals, and beliefs of the people
