TRAVELS / Boston and Harvard

I’ve been to the U.S. a few times in my life but I’ve never been to Boston. I imagined it to be an old city with a lot of small shops that you enter through a beautiful wooden door, a small bell rings and an elder lady welcomes you as if you’ve just stepped into your grandma’s house. Something that would perfectly fit into this imagined picture of mine would be old Cadillac like Elvis used to drive it or even carriages. But boy was I wrong…Boston has more than 600.000 inhabitants and is quite modern. But it is still different. There are those little neighbourhoods like Northend and there is this unbelievably cute street called Newbury Street. There are two shops in every house and mini gardens just outside each house. It was a wonderful picture walking down this incredible street.

Of course, Boston is also known for its Universities as not only the majestical Harvard but also the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are located there. Walking through the holy gates of Harvard was a little irrealastic to me. You’ve heard so much about it, U.S. films and series push it so much and then you’re there. I even went into one of the buildings and watched students hurry into class. The weather was so beautiful that day that my Harvard experience was truly magical. Of course, when in Boston you have to visit MIT. For me it was even better than Harvard just because the MIT is something I can relate to. You could see the technological creativity everywhere. Up the stairs in a lonely corner we found this amazing building with a few robots standing by the window as if it was the most normal thing in the world. Fantastic. Of course I had to buy a shirt from MIT and a Harvard sweater which I will show you right here, so come back and be prepared for more.
