Salem, the city of witches.

Salem, MA- City of witches
So yesterday we went to Salem. It’s mostly famous for the witch trials and witch haunts that took place during the 1600 hundreds.

I know, this is so me. The first thing I did was to find a place to eat. We went to a lunch/dinner place called ‘Rockafellas”. It was alright, we spent most of our time in Salem waiting for our food to come, but when it did it was worth it.

As you can see it was a nice atmosphere inside, just as the sign had promised.Salem, MA- City of witchesI went there with these two girls, Summer and Tiana. Salem, MA- City of witchesThis is what I had, a veggie sandwich. So good! Salem, MA- City of witchesWe went to some museums as well that our school had payed for, but honestly nothing grand and worth mentioning. Salem, MA- City of witchesThats what I looked like in Salem. I just had to take a selfie inside of the store we went to, I took so many photos in there. Like, photos of things. Not selfies. Just to clarify guys.. 

And hey dad, that’s the raincoat we bought when I was home! Didn’t think I’d be wearing it, did you?

Salem, MA- City of witchesSalem, MA- City of witchesSalem, MA- City of witchesSalem, MA- City of witchesThey even had a small altar where you could write notes to someone that you had lost. Which a lot of people had done. Salem, MA- City of witchesSalem, MA- City of witchesAs I said before, some things were pretty terrifying. Salem, MA- City of witchesSalem, MA- City of witchesSomething that I thought was funny was that Summer got a psychic reading in the same store.
I think the store was called “Hex- Old world witchery”. If you’d ever would happen to be in the neighbourhood.
Salem, MA- City of witchesThis was the lady who gave her the reading. Her name was Nyx Valentine.

Salem is really cute. Salem, MA- City of witchesWe were quite touristy. Salem, MA- City of witchesWe passed the cemetery as well. Look at the stones, look at how old they are. Salem, MA- City of witchesIt was spring there as well. Salem, MA- City of witchesOur school had arranged so that we could watch a small play about the witch trials in the town hall. Salem, MA- City of witchesSalem, MA- City of witchesIt was pretty intense.

So in overall Salem was very touristy and tacky. I guess it was a fun change from our normal, everyday, life in Boston. Besides, that must have been the first day we were our since the bombings, so thank God for that.
