A two-week late August jaunt through New England, beginning and ending in New York City. New England was the last region of the country I hadn’t visited, unless you count a Shabbat in Stamford and a Pesach in Cambridge. I didn’t, and wanted to see as much of the rest of the place as I could. So we travelled there, backing up the trip against Labor Day weekend to give us an extra day to get home and resettled.
