Just a quick entry as money is running out. How did I spend my last day in America. Well, this morning the three of us took the subway to Cambridge to visit the most famous and prestigious university in the world - Harvard. As we got off the subway, two seniors of that university were waiting to offer us a free guided tour, which proved to be very informative - lots about the history of the university and the many famous (and infamous) people who have attended there. After lunch, we parted company and I continued on the Freedom Trail which I wasn't able to finish yesterday. Visited another lovely church where Paul Revere used the steeple to flash lantern signals to let the Sons of Liberty know the British were on their way! For all you boys out there - young and old - you would have been envious of my visit to Charleston Navy Yard, which is closed now (like Chatham) but has USS Constitution, the oldest warship in existence. I walked the deck, looking at the canon and the great height of the masts etc. In contrast, I then went on board a modern warship (forgotten its name) for a look around - more on that when I get back for those of you who are interested. On to Bunker Hill where the first battle of the Revolution was fought. By this time, my legs were aching like mad and the sun was really getting to me. I managed to locate a tube station nearby and a very kind American lady helped me to work out where I needed to go to get back to Boston! We're all packed up and ready to leave. Off out for our final meal shortly and catching two tube trains to the airport tomorrow, which means getting up at about 4.30am. It's great to be heading home, though. When I review this trip, here are some of the amazing things I've done and seen: I've seen giant pandas, dolphins, monkeys, killer whale, yak (and eaten it!), rode on an elephant; peered into the Grand Canyon, climbed up beautiful fountains, walked MILES; looked into a Tibetan nomad's tent, stayed in the home of Tibetan country folk, explored churches and temples; eaten all types of food (resisted the dog); cycled in China and over the Golden Gate Bridge; snorkelled in the great oceans of the world; travelled by plane, speed boat, bus, trolley, tram, taxi and tube; taken HUNDREDS of photographs; experienced cultures which are worlds apart - And LOTS more! It's been quite an experience! Has it given me itchy feet to travel more? Well, at the moment my feet are simply sore and need a good rest. I'm looking forward to 'normal' life in England again - and all the home comforts that entails. 'There's no place like home' is certainly true for me. However, it has made me realise how small the world is and how easy it is to explore it. I'm sure I will explore it some more when I've recovered - along with my bank balance. That's it for now.
