Fahrenheits, miles, feet, Ipads and King sizes...

My arrival in Boston was a pretty nice one. The ride on the upper deck of the 747 was smoother than I had thought. I watched this french movie, L'âge de raison. It was nice. I intend to speak french onboard Air France flights, let's see if I can express myself well and if I understand the replies.

Logan is a friendly, typical American airport, as it should be. Had a little trouble fighting my way through the maze of ground transportation options, in the end I bought my T(this their subway) tickets and found the shuttle bus that would take me to the Blue line. Once on the T getting around is banal.

With some help from a handheld GPS, I quickly found the adress where I was being waited for. My guests are emigrants who have been living here for 20 years, from my native city. Theey are really nice and welcoming people, so kind to accept me in their home based on just some emails.

After a rather long and undisturbed rest, the next day I ventured into fighting my way through the campus labyrinth of MIT. I chose not to exit at the Kendall station of the T, which is the closest one to MIT, but the Kenmore, so I had to walk across the bridge on Mass Ave, above the Charles river. Whew, that was a chilly and windy trespassing!

My destination was building #37, where my Space Propulsion Lab Tour was coming up.

By the way, there are very few really beautiful and nice looking girls here...

Okay, so I met my tour guide, S., (a kid just drove by in an accessible chair, 'bout 10 years old, with a bunch of books stacked in front o him. I don't think he's the janitor or the gardner..) who was kind enough to lend me a couple of hours of his time.

/gotta go, stay tuned!
