We're now just two weekends away from the start of the new school year (cue the tears), so each and every second of the weekend is too precious to let go to waste.
Last Saturday, I broke out of the Harvard bubble and ventured to the nearby Union Square in Somerville for the "Ignite! A Global Street Food and Fire and Fire Festival", a huge food/culture/arts festival featuring some of the best food inspired from countries around the world, handmade, handcrafted artisanal goods, a collection of the coolest people from all around Boston.
I have to say that the ambience of Boston/the neighboring communities is so different in the summer. The vibes are so chill -- the Bostonians who've stayed in the city for the summer months are mostly all professionals or student interns, making for a relaxed bunch of city dwellers looking for a casual, good time on the weekends.
These lanterns were so cool. We sat and watched all of the street performers (the music was also on point! There was a group of about 15 musicians who coordinated to play the theme of Ghostbusters, complete with a little synchronized dance) while eating some of the best naan and samosas in the city. Mmmmm.
Summer is dwindling, but I'm all about taking advantage of every last ray of sunlight before to have fun and adventure around the city before school starts again!
