Boston

Here are some pics from my current trip to Boston. I am here to visit my brother, but mainly I’ve been wandering around since he has work.

This is the entryway to the library. Imagine having a library like this. To be honest, the library does better at being a museum than a library. They have an archaic system for organizing books, not the Dewey Decimal system.

A piano from the 1790s. One of the first pianos built.

A fan  from the Philippines, 1700s. It’s hard to see, but the fan is decorated entirely with feathers. The faces of the people, the horses, everything. I can’t imagine doing that out of feathers, it is so ornate.
