The preceding boundary of what I remember has to do with walking and bus connections to squares in the Somerville area. Davis Square was actually a rural rotary. Just a little south of it was a parking lot with lightposts at the edge, and I was helped connect a chain of rings, each comprising metal and rubber pieces, which attached to the lightpost. Then later I was in the same general area but walking on an eastward gravel path to an opening view with an area of interlocking gardens and terraces, also a pool, at the end of the road. This was the one entrance to the city of Tahiti (should have been Tallinn, as it was definitely the capital of Estonia, but who’s counting) which was odd because one of the sections of the gardens was private property and it was just all quite unassuming for a city entrance, although very pleasant. I had seen different pieces of this area published in landscape/architecture books, and recognized it right away from there. I jumped into a pool chair and people were splashing around so I soon got damp in my fully clothed state, and then different Williams alums starting arriving and showing up all over the place.

    I’m counting. Tallinn is much cooler than Tahiti, literally and figuratively.
