Some out of state friends came to stay with us for five days and we became unofficial tour guides of Massachusetts, visiting the Freedom Trail and its nearby attractions, Harvard, MIT, the New England Aquarium, Crane Beach in Ipswich, taking a Duck Tour, and a trip to Plymouth to see Plimoth Plantation and the Mayflower II.
Having grown up in Plymouth, it was weirdly delightful to show it off. The most troubling part of being a tour guide in a very historic place? Realizing I knew more about how to deep fry Coke (having lived in Texas for a bit) than the history of my state.
Oh the shame.
