I'm at a conference right now in Boston which reminds me a) all the reasons I really do love my job and b) just how awesome the city of Boston is!
I always intended to move back to Boston after I moved away to go teach English in Istanbul. However, despite all my efforts, life had other things in store for me!
So, here I am this week, 4 or 5 years after my last visit. 10 or so years since I lived here.
Mostly I'm working which has been great, but a couple of times, I've gotten to get out and have dinner or a meal with friends, colleagues and/or customers.
Eating so many fabulous meals out with others really reinforced that despite the fact that sometimes I *think* I can eat a fair amount, really compared to everyone else at every meal I've eaten, my portions are just tiny. A few people have said, oh will that be enough? LOVE IT!
And since I'm so busy working and satisfied with hanging out etc, I've turned down lots of opportunities to eat bad things. Like fancy desserts, chips, etc. A small amount REALLY does satisfy me. And for whatever reason, I'm not wanting to snack at all like I was before.
I do have to take it easy eating and talking. Make sure everything goes down well of course!
More sight seeing tonight and tomorrow. Can't wait!
