Boston from the sky & the ramifications of an expat life

I’ve been living the expat life in London for four years now but my next trip to Boston is never far behind.  Every four months I’m back in Beantown making the rounds visiting family & friends and some of my long running favorite dining establishments.  I’m home often but my last visit surprised me deeply.
