07MA: Day 3 - Boston (Museum + Theater)

Terri and I took the train into the city. I can still hear the automated announcement: "Next stop, Harvard" and "Next stop, MIT." I had the lowest IQ on the train.

We took the red line to the green line and that out to the Boston Museum of Fine Art to catch the Edward Hopper Exhibit. While we waited for our "turn" to enter this special event, we headed to the Impressionists in the European Art section. I love it.

I'm so glad we rented the headsets for the Hopper -- I know so little and don't have the patience to read all the captions I need to read to really get it all. It was all very well done and Hopper's art is quite enjoyable in many ways. I still don't get the thing with some artists for painting women doing mundane things (sitting in a chair, looking out a window, reading the paper, and such) naked. Even more odd to me is naked except for shoes or a hat. Anyhow, I'm not really looking for answers about that...just find it strangely amusing.

We grabbed a late lunch and then, inspired by the RAIN to alter our afternoon plans, we headed to the Lowes multiplex across the street from Boston Common and just down the street from Park Street Church. (I'd like to visit there next time I go to Boston.)

We saw Becoming Jane. Also very enjoyable. Sad story, really...but nicely told. I enjoyed Anne Hathaway in this role.


  1. So... am I allowed to watch this movie? :)

  2. OH!!! and hahahaha -- naked except for a hat :) hehehe

  3. Aileen: Becoming Jane is a sad sort of romantic comic-tragedy-drama. View at your own risk. It's fiction, so they can make it come out the way they want and that may be the most disturbing thing of all.
