I don't get a chance to fly to Boston except for the MRS conference, so yesterday afternoon I finally decided to take this opportunity to visit the campus of Harvard and MIT. After spending almost a year in Berkeley, CA, Boston seems to small! Everything is within a 20 minute walk and I love it! The MIT campus is about a 20 minute walk from Hynes Convention Center, and the Harvard campus is about a 30 minute walk from the MIT campus....in Berkeley the closest grocery store to my apartment is a 20 minute walk, so is the closest Starbucks.
Oh, and I also got to try J. P. Lick's famous ice-cream - it stood up to its reputation.
Anyway, here are some snapshots of my experience.
