Day 5 - Adventures in Beantown
Day 5 started super early. Showering in dorm bathrooms was interesting cuz they have 2 showers right next to each other but one is a tub and the other has a wrap around curtain. So if you weren’t paying attention you could go into the other shower instead of exiting. Weird. Got some breakfast and then Zanda took us on a campus tour. Very pretty campus and everything is spaced apart. The...
Day 4 - Adventures in Beantown
So after a late start yesterday we had an even later start today. Didn’t leave the house til 3. We were going to go to harvard (which interestingly iPod auto corrects to “garbage”) but we didn’t have free parking so we had to go to Boston first to get parking passes and we decided to skip harvard. We continued the freedom trail after a super late lunch but got distracted...
Day 3- Adventures in Beantown
I swear it was just 9pm like 20 min ago but now it’s well after 2am. How did that happen? Anyway, today started a bit earlier than yesterday.

We had to deal with hoards of middle schoolers everywhere we...

Only problem is, when we left, it looked like rain, and no one was prepared. Headed to Tufts Vet campus and got a tour. We encountered a little rain, but it wasn’t too bad. It wasn’t til we...

Day 1 in Beantown (now with pics!)
A quick recap as we start day 2. The alarm went off at 4:15 am. The tv was still on and I was so effing confused. Made it to lax in plenty of time; I wish traffic was always that easy. One of the tsa agents was super angry with the world but the rest were unusually cheerful. In line I saw the dreaded body scanner, but luckily we weren’t in that one. Some guy asked an agent if his line was going...
