Today we had a nice and well deserved sleep in until about 11am. It was a lovely 26 degrees and sunny outside today, much nicer than yesterday so we donned the shorts and singlets.
After getting ready we out for the day, past our new haunt Newberry street for coffee. Stopped at Pavement coffee for fix, and so far that's the best coffee we've had. I had a frozen coconut yoghurt with berries for breakky and then we took off for another walk in the dirction of Cambridge.
Michael wanted to see Harvard, so we headed in that direction over the Harvard bridge walking over the Charles River. We stopped to take a look at MIT (Massachuestts Institute of Technology) and had a quick wander through one of the buildings. We kept walking along the main drag which took us through town, there were lots of cute shops, restaurants and the city hall and post office were huge! The achitechure in this area is amazing, so many period houses and buildings that are beautiful.
Eventually we get into Harvard around 2pm, and stop for some lunch at subway in the restaurant precinct. This place is like a propper city! After lunch we keep walking into the Harvar,d garden, and stumble upon the John Harvard statue. The buildings and the gardens are beautiful, it's so peaceful around the place, until later when we bump into a protest!
We wander up into the campus further past the law school, and the science school, then back past the Cambridge Common and head back into boston. On the way back to the hotel we stop in at a Walgreens supermarket / Pharmacy to purchase some snacks and drinks. Tonight we meet our tour guide and fellow travellers, and will head out for dinner.
We finally head to our welcome drinks to meet our tour guide and travellers, and we are on the geriatric bus! Everyone is 50 + and we are the only young people on the bus. We have a quiet drink and learn that about 60% of the travellers are from Australia and a the rest from the USA.
We then head out for a quiet dinner at the prudential centre Cheesecake Factory and head to bed resonantly early.
