I went with Katrina and her mother to visit our friend Megan, who bribed the people at Harvard to let her study there this summer. So now she's doing the summer program there. Basically, she takes out a tiny brush and cleans off old manuscripts to see if Nostradamus predicted any big earthquakes.
It took a few hours to get to Cambridge, but we stopped at lots of sexy rest stops so it was cool. When we got to Cambridge, Megan got in the car to direct us around town....
But as you can see from this photo, she had no idea what she was talking about and we got lost for years.
We spent the night in Cambridge, where we saw Inception (good!) and Katrina's mom yelled at the Chinese food restaurant and demanded a refund (and got it!).
The next morning, we went into the subway and Megan and I took this sweet photo together.
When we arrived in Boston, the first thing we passed was this market, which sold CHEAP fruit.
Plums, 5 for $1?!
Then we ate at some joint and there was a bird on the table next to us.
Megan and Katrina!
Some important building?
This squirrel was sprawled like this for a while.
The last few photos were taken in Boston Common, this park with creepy performers and swan boats and stuff. There's a bridge there, so Megan and I went under it for a photo.
And on top of it for a photo.
THEN I MET VAL.
Val is Josh's BFF from high school who I've talked to via text and Facebook, but hadn't met before this trip.
We walked down some CRAZY street with EXPENSIVE stores! But rather than buy anything at Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Valentino, Louis Vuitton, Armani, Chanel, Burberry, Banana Republic, Betsey Johnson, Guess, Ralph Lauren, DKNY, etc. etc., we went to H&M...
And right to the SALE section!
Val was awesome and pretty and funny and talented. We had to ask some 12 year old to take this photo of us, so you better like it!
Val had to go be a slave to her job, so I rejoined Megan, Katrina, and Maria Luz for dinner at Fire + Ice. Fire + Ice is a restaurant feat slabs of raw meat strewn around the room. You put the raw meat in a bowl, throw it at some stove slave, and watch them cook it. It's cool because you get to make your own meal! I made two.
It was delicious!
We came back to Cambridge to look at Harvard. Here's the freshman cafeteria.
We walked by some famous statue of the man who
We went to the Harvard bookstore (where I got Sense and Sensibility) and listened to some crazy man talk about killing the president. And that's basically it. Boston and Cambridge were nice. I'd go back.
