Pikkies- political statements abound at this church.

Nice water feature at Harvard

Harvard Book Store and the Mueller Report in its window

Not a prison, a game of baseball. Neither the physiques or skill were impressive.


Is across the River Charles from Boston. Managed the metro system and spent a pleasant time in the town of Cambridge which Harvard dominates. After eating my first burger in the USA (fairly boring ) joined a walking tour around the huge campus. The majority of the buildings seem to be posh digs for students including one of the Obama daughters.

I then walked down to MIT which I had not realised was so close to Harvard, about 2 ks away…

The whole area was heaving with tourists , lunch choice  was determined by availability of seats.

Then back on the metro over the river and a walk  back thru the gardens and back to Newbury Guest House and my spartan cell. No skerrick of sun reaches my room.

I walked 14 ks so felt a bit tired . Have bought tickets for a hop on hop off tour- no big red buses here, called Old Trolley Tours…50 us$.Ouch!!

Weather is Ok , between13-16, so jacket weather.
