New England Vacation #6
Today we move south in New England to Boston, Massachusetts. This was taken in Chinatown, where men constantly gather to play Chinese Chess on boards drawn on cardboard. Just to the right of the photo is a human-size Chinese Chess board painted on the sidewalk. In the warmer months there are human-size pieces you can play chess with. These men were very much into their game, as are the men behind them, as you can kind of see. There are also plenty of other men who aren't playing, but are willing to offer their wise (or not so wise?) advice on moves and strategies.
