FC: BOSTON 2009!!
1: First we went to the Quincy Market to get something eat. The food was delicious. It was VERY cool.
2: In this photo a group of my friends huddled together with a statue holding a cigar. A friendly tour guide took this picture of us.
3: After we took a somewhat long drive, we went to see Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sock's stadium. Fenway Park has been in Boston since 1921, it is the third smallest baseball field.
4: We followed our guide throughout the tour. When we finally stepped outside we saw three movie stars shooting a movie in town. Sadly, I only got a picture of the backs of their heads.
5: Then we met another tour guide. She lead us to a street called Smith court. We also saw one of the safehouses.tHIS WERE THE SLAVES WENT TO GET PROTECTION FROM THEIR SLAVEOWERS.
6: This is the old African American Meeting house. It is now a Museum and the Abel Smith School.
7: This is the tomb stone of James Otis. He was one of the many people who fought for the right to break away from England. Not only was he a fighter, he was also a highly respected lawyer. James Otis was born in 1725 and died in 1783.
8: Here lies Paul Revere's memorial tablet. Many people know Paul Revere as the person who said "The British are coming,the British are coming." What people don't know as much, is that he did not say that at all! Instead he said "The regulars are coming, the regulars are coming." He said this because at the time they were all British.
9: This is a photo of John Hancock. John Hancock is one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. He was one of the few men who led the Revolutionary War. John Hancock was known for his stylish signature. It was so famous that today, John Hancock is the synonym for signature.
10: We followed our tour guide to a brick building with what seemed to be golden lions on the top. This is where the Boston Massacre took place. Five people died. Three civilians died during the massacre and two after. The stone floor with the star is a memorial to all the people in the Boston Massacre.
11: This is another monument. Instead of Ben Franklin, the person who's last name is on it, it is his parents' monument. Franklin was a hard worker and drove himself to help with the break away from England. This monument is the largest in the cemetery. Franklin is on the hundred dollar American bill.
12: We said our goodbyes and left the last tour guide for the day. We went to the Hard Rock Café. The next day we went on a Duck Tour!! I was on military green duck with a funny quacking horn.
13: This is the view from the duck on water! It was a beautiful site to see but sadly, my camera's batteries died after these pictures. It was wonderful to feel the wind in my face and the fresh air to smell. Our tour guide made funny jokes. He gave some of us a chance to drive the duck, including me!
14: After everything was done the entire 7th grade class went to a Blue Man group concert. It was great. Blue guys throwing stuff and toilet paper flying from the ceiling.
15: This is a guy that we saw on a pogo stick. He did really cool moves and made the crowd cheer for him wildly.
16: This is a whole group of girls standing (or hiding) near a donkey that represents the Democratic party. It is said that the Democratic party received the donkey because of one person. Andrew Jackson. When people heard that Jackson was running for president, the people started to call him "Jackass Jackson." It went from that point on that the donkey represented the Democratic party.
17: This is Paul Revere's House. It is how most of the houses back then would look. Right next to his house is his cousin's house, it is made out of brick. The street are still made with cobble stone,still bumpy! Today it is a regular street right next to a school.
18: This was a great trip...I would like to go again, Thank You...
19: The End!!
