  • Newbury Street: A place where many of the City of Boston's residents can't afford to shop, but love to go to people watch. The coffee shop was a league of nations with a few different languages being spoken. My partner is Scot with his appropriate accent; the women seated next to me were students from Italy and France with their lilting vowels; and the couple next to them was arguing, or just conversing loudly, hands gesticulating, voices guttural in a language I suspect was Middle Eastern. Since my own her-story is an immigrant tale, I felt at home and snug in this spot on the Rodeo Drive of Boston.
