boston, part four

thursday morning we set out for kendall square. amazingly, we made it without a hitch and began wandering the grounds at mit. i came upon one of those "you are here" maps outside one of the campus buildings. between the coordinates and labeling system, it was clearly designed by an mit grad, as it made no sense to me whatsoever. we walked along the charles and snapped some skyline pictures on our way to the great dome, where we also, of course, snapped some pictures. we meandered around campus, browsed the bookstores, then hopped on the red line, outbound for harvard. we ate at some point [lobster bisque for me, a ginormous slice of pizza for katie], then wandered about, browsing bookstores and buildings. eventually we cooled off in the hot afternoon sun with some iced mochas and sprawled on harvard yard, napping on and off and trying to ignore the VERY LOUD TOUR GUIDES while we waited for rachel, gwyneth and bekah to join us. the resulting romp around campus included but was not limited to: silliness in the harvard science building, silliness outside the science building, silliness in the music building... well. you get the idea. i had a mission to fulfill at a park street t-shirt kiosk, so katie and i took the t while the rest of the girls found a burger joint and rode home via georgio. after a heck of a time in between trains trying to find a non-fast food, non-waitstaff restaurant, we settled on au bon pain thai chicken wraps, then hopped on our last t ride and made the long uphill walk to rachel's. ali had now joined the party at this point, resulting in rachel's peeps all together at one time. of course, there were many pictures taken, with actual marshmallow peeps also getting involved in the craziness [select pictures from rachel here]. it was utterly fantastic, and i couldn't have planned a better end to our time in boston.
but wait! there's more... i haven't even made it to maine yet.
this is ridiculous, i know. just one more post...

All of this is making me want to go back to Boston.

I look forward to the impending post that will make me want to go back to Maine.
