Boston, Massachusetts

I enjoyed visiting with Oryx Cohen and the team at the National Empowerment Center, an organisation that does some good critical alternative mental health work. I also spent Christmas Day with Oryx and his family which was great.

USS Constitution

This 44 gun frigate, also known as ‘old ironsides’ is the oldest US Navy ship still afloat. Built in 1797, she participated in three wars, the Quasi War, First Barbary War and the War of 1812. In 2012, the bicentennial of the War of 1812 is being celebrated, and she will again sail under her own power in a ceremonial voyage around Boston. To this day, it is still an official US Navy ship staffed by active duty naval officers.

As you can see, the list of captains for this ship dates back a long time.
