Day 356

SO LONG NYC! I think today I have felt the most homesick so far, not much, just a wee little bit. Probably due to catching up with so many buddies here in NYC, both locals and people from back home. I had a delicious lunch and a couple of jugs of sangria with Jess before…

Day 341

Home made cookies, muffins and beers at Cheers! Cheers! Never watched the show, but thought I couldn’t leave Boston without at least peeking in side the bar which inspired the show and having a beer at the replica, not that I need an excuse to have a beer. Contrary to popular belief, no one knew…

Day 340

This is one of the giant stained glass windows at the Havard University’s Memorial Hall, which was actually modelled after the hall in the UK which was the inspiration for the Hogwarts from the Harry Potter books/movies.
