After a two week visit home (north Georgia, and a bit of visiting family in Florida), it’s great to be back in Boston. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of things the south has that our area doesn’t:
- Waffle House (and other 24/7 diners).
- Sane drivers.
- Good barbecue.
It’s interesting that Boston is very much a city of people who have chosen to live here. That may sound strange, but think about how many people live no further than 50 miles from where they grew up. We may have more colleges than anywhere else in the country, but the majority of students don’t stay here. The ones who do, they’re choosing to. The people who move here, like me, like you, have found in this place something we truly like. Like New York, Boston is a place people are coming to because it’s an active, vital city with opportunity and diversity.
That’s worth the winter, right?
