Boston, a City that May Be Better Than Detroit

We stayed last night in Syracuse. Went to see Syracuse University. A beautiful campus with a lot of amazing old buildings. Not a student was in sight on July 4. We found the campus business district and at at a Greek-American greasy-spoon type of restaurant run by an old man from Greece. He asked "Where are you from?"

"Detroit," I said.

"Where are you going?"

"To Boston."

He replied, "Boston is better than Detroit."

My Greek salad was excellent! Josh had a really good baked pepperoni-pastry thing, and Linda had gyros with "real" french fries.

We went to the county fairgrounds and joined tens of thousands of people and watched the fireworks.

We're packed up and leaving for Boston, a city that may be better than Detroit.
