My Trip to Boston...

So...alittle over a week ago I had to go to Boston for Meetings for the exchange student organization I work with. I got there on Thursday and our meetings did not start until Friday night so on Friday morning they took us over to Salem (as in Witch trials) to see the sights. It was a happening place considering Halloween was the next day.

This was the cemetery where alot of the people were buried who were hung over the whole Witch thing....The gravestones were very thin from all the weather over the last 300 or so years

This was the witch museum...very interesting place to have a witch museum wouldn't ya say?
Inside they go through the whole story of the witch trials and how and why they happened

This was a statue outside in the intersection. Cant remember who this dude was but it was kinda creepy

This is the emblem on the police cars in Salem
(you can click on it to make it bigger to see it better)

We were also able to visit the house of the seven gables which is believed to have been the inspiration for the novel by Nathaniel Hawthorn of the same name, he also wrote the scarlet letter.
This is not the house of the seven Gables but just a small modest house that was move to the property.
