Boston, Travelling

Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park

On our last night in Boston we had tickets to the Red Sox – Rangers game at Fenway Park. Our hotel was located just behind the baseball park so it was a perfect last outing. And what a beautiful night it was!

Pictures can’t do justice to how beautiful this ballpark is!

We had great luck with the weather as well on this perfectly warm summer night

We left about two hours in and after checking the final score, we didn’t really miss that much

We saw Wally the Green Monster on our way out!

Such a great night, such a great area. I’m not at all a big baseball fan (or sports fan, period) but if I had to choose one sport, it would be baseball for sure. It’s great because it’s fairly slow, which means there is a lot of time for people watching, drinking beer, eating hot dogs and enjoying a nice summer night outside, whilst still being able to keep up with what’s happening down on the field.

Crayfish kind of night

Friday night in August means crayfish time! This is the best time of the year to eat crayfish in Sweden, so we figured why not? After work, we picked up these suckers from a local market.

Here accompanied with a simple salad, some very white bread, aioli and riseling from Alsace.

Salad made up of rocket, locally grown tomatoes and radish (and that smudge, again)

I wonder what spot is best for begging, this…

She ended up getting none, but was happy anyway. And so were we! Simple dinner with close to  zero preparation, yet filling and tasty. Five thumbs up.
