It's been awhile since I've been through Boston, but at that time there were a couple of key rules: #1: when your light turns green, wait for a second. At least one and maybe two cars will run the red light; and #2: ignore all lane markings and most speed limit signs, like the locals do.
Anti-hero: great bike and food porn!! You really have a knack, both in the kitchen and behind the lens!
I'd be interested to hear your take on the Vineyard. Most people I know find it beautiful, and at this time of year, peaceful. The tourists must be gone, so what's it like?
