The Chinatown bus left approximately fifteen minutes late, and took almost four hours, which is pretty good time if you think about it. I then took the "T" as they call the subway, here to my hotel and unpacked. I know this isn't as interesting as it should be, but wait! We're getting to the good stuff later.
Our first order of business is to take the T down to UMass and what's called the Boston Social Forum, convergence of lefties and old-time commies [speaker Angela Davis was the party's VP nominee at least twice] and it should be kind'a interesting. More later.
