 HARVARD! i got so excited, and it rhymes with arvid, my friend from uni...if only he'd gone to Harvard and not UC, then he would be Arvid from Harvard hahaha.. this is what i thought about on the walk to Harvard this morning, to distract me from how far away it actually was... and the fact that it was raining a little bit...haha oh well we were going to harvard!! which is what we were in boston to do pretty much, which is why we only spent one night...

oh by the way, the beds were super comfy, much better than ny where i had to lay all my clothes and towels and stuff on the mattress to cover up the springs. so the nights sleep was amazing :D
and there was free breakfast, and it wasnt just cereal and toast...there was yoghurt and bagels and yummy stuff :D

So anyway, back to Harvard, we got there, stopped in all the shops along the way and i spent $150 on merchandise haha...oops. oh well, the family will all be decked out in Harvard attire when i get home :D lucky them, everyone will think they are REAL smart :P oh wait, THEY ARE. nawww love you fam bam <3

So Harvard is really massive, and old school buildings and awesomeness. I liked just looking, whereas tom wanted to go into every building to see what an extra couple of thousand dollars a year gets you at uni.

We were going to do a student led tour of harvard but then it started to pour down so we had frozen yoghurt instead and inspected the map and discovered the route they take for the tour we pretty much walked this morning already so it wouldnt have been worth it anyway. thanks rain for saving us some tipping money on that one.

To get back to the hostel we had to walk through MIT again, and we got there about half an hour before the MIT tour started, so we decided since we didnt do the harvard too and since it had stopped raining now that we could do the MIT tour. which was a MUCH better idea. Because it was run as an introductory tour for people thinking of coming to the school, so we didnt have to tip and it went through all the buildings and the girl was really nice, so it was a lot more interesting and worth it. Also, such a massive school and totally different structure to an australian university. It was really insightful and interesting.

We then went back to the hostel, grabbed our bags and caught the subway to south station to wait for the megabus bus to Washington DC at 10pm! and we ate maccas for dinner :) hehe
