This week I’ve been spending some time with Karina Guadencio, an Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies specwriter from Brazil.  In addition to lots of discussion in the office, we’ve been to a Boston Chapter CSI meeting, had lunch with the master specwriting team at Kalin Associates, conducted a punch list at Harvard Law School, and visited Columbus Door (thanks everyone!).  It’s been a whirlwind tour!  Add the cold and last night’s snow, and I think she’s ready to head south (especially since she’s having dinner with my family tonight! :D).

Tonight we saw some beautiful Boston doors that I had never seen before – the entrance doors on the Old City Hall.  The building was built in 1865, in the French Second Empire Style.  I would guess that the main entrance doors are at least 15 feet tall, and 3+ inches thick.  Each has a round marble inlay and ornate panels and molding.  Next time you’re walking the Freedom Trail, stop and take a look!

This is another pair inside of the building:

I have TONS of reader photos piled up in my inbox.  Maybe next week will be a complete series of reader photo posts!  If you have some to add, send them along…
