Baobab Youth members are having a great time in Boston! We arrived after an easy drive down. I love listening to my passengers’ playlists….there are always some great new bands to discover and some of my own favourites. We are staying in Medford so we have easy access to Tufts University. The hotel is great! Each room is a suite and the huge couches are a hit.
Our first day was hanging around Davis Square, a hip neighbourhood near the University…..with second hand shops, other funky stores and a GREAT café with killer coffee…called Diesel no less. Everybody happy! Especially the director!
After a bite in Davis Square, we went to Tufts for a look at the Music Building where we were going to be performing. We had arranged to get a tour from first year grad student, Brett, a drummer who is working on a Bobobo thesis. The Granoff music building is impressive in its beauty, facilities-classrooms, practices rooms, library (the moveable stacks were a BIG hit;) and of course Distler Hall.
