Some things I find fascinating about Boston and the surrounding towns:
- Shortened street names-which is rather practical as far as I'm concerned....once you get used to it.
- I've long wondered- why there is no 'A' train on the Green Line? It seems to have existed at one point. (Maybe I'm just biased towards trains versus buses).
- The Green Line moves at a glacial pace. I'm becoming a bigger fan of the Orange Line, despite the loud high school kids that seem to always be on it with me.
- 'Express' means something very different in Boston transit terms than anywhere else I've ever been. I gave myself about an hour to get from JP to that part of Comm Ave., that should've been plenty. The 'express' train from Kenmore to Babcock St. took forever. I almost had to call and change my appointment, as the 'express' train was making me late.
- I saw a school bus run a red light. A school bus.
- It seems that almost all salons in the city are on Newbury St. Why?
- General chaos of parking regulations around here
- I saw a sign in Cambridge for 12 minute parking. That's so random.
- That residents of Cambridge are called Cantabrigians
- The layers of communication that exist online (outside of the mainstream media)
- That people in the metro area have not yet rebelled or staged a coup in response to the construction, Big Dig, or the flaws associated with it. (I thought I had it bad when I lived in N.Y. and N.J. Boy was I wrong).
- A prostitute is called a Common Night Walker
