Princeton University was one of today's destinations. As you can see from the very scenic pictures the campus is beautiful. My host family Mum and Dad both went to Princeton University so I got a tour of all the sights and visited some of their first date locations! As I have discovered over my time in the States so far the Universities have big rivalries especially in sport (see later in the post). Princeton University is one of the 8 Ivy League Schools all located in the north east of the USA. The University is also the setting for 'A Beautiful Mind' based on a true story, host Dad had run into John Forbes Nash, Jr. as he was frantically scribbled equations all over a calk board while he was a student there.

We met with one of Amy's friends who works at the Princeton University Art Museum for lunch at a Thai restaurant and Thomas Sweet (first date location!) for ice cream. You choose your ice cream flavour and a topping that they blend together to make smooth ice cream. I chose coffee ice cream & M 'n' M's it was gorgeous!

We had a family outing to Lefyette College located in Eastern, Pennsylvania for the Lefyette v. Lehigh swim meet to see David (son of host family) taking part in the relay. It was great to see how into in all the families and students were. Following a very convincing victory by Lehigh University (our team) we went to Lehigh University located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and celebrated with dinner at a Sports Bar with the whole family - grandma, mum, dad, daughter, son, son's girlfriend and me.

It was a very busy and exciting day!
