Explore Boston on Solstice

Michael writes: Pick your favorite seasonal holiday if you wish, or just come on out on winter solstice weekend and do a little bit of URBAN exploration with me--let's walk around parts of Boston that you've probably done before, but will enjoy again. We'll almost certainly stroll through the oldest park in the country---Boston Common----as well as take in the city's newest park---the Rose Kennedy Greenway: see what your taxes paid for. We'll probably do some or all of the Freedom Trail and view some of Boston's oldest surviving architecture. While we're NOT likely to stop and skate on the Frog Pond, in addition to the various seasonal decorations and historic sites we will pass, if it's cold (likely) we may stop in a North End cafe for a cannolli and capuccino or other hot beverage or soup, and perhaps after the walk enjoy some cheap eats in Chinatown or someplace else.
You can do as much or as little of our walk as you wish, as we will always be in the heart of Boston, so public transit bailout points will always be nearby. I don't plan to cancel for weather unless there is a declared emergency.
Meet in the lobby of the Boston International Hostel at 10:30 a.m.. on SUNDAY, 21 DEC. We'll see if any international or out of town visitors to Boston care to have some local hosts/tour guides on their visit. Address is 19 Stuart Street (next to Jacob Wirth's Restaurant, and directly across the street from Tufts Medical Center). It is best reached by public transit via the following stations:
