MIT Boston: Part II

Hey dolls

I'm back with a new post. It feels so good to re-live the USA memories; even though they are still fresh in my head. Did you know I'm a HUGE FAN of the people over there? Ah! I can't stress on it enough. 

You know the most loveliest things that happened to us was this: All of us clicking pictures and while it happened, a gorgeous couple just bombarded our picture. Next thing you know, they are apologizing like anything! They not only asked us if they could click our pictures, but also guided us on our way back to the hotel at night! What a show!!! Oh and, this story is from New York. What can I do, the only conversations we had in boston were highly intellectual ;)






 




 

The third day brought some relief to the ever chilly weather. Sun, flowers and the Harvard Business School campus. It is by far the best campuses I've ever seen. Beautiful garden, huge dining area, spectacular bunch of crowd. I just loved the day.

Anyway more stories coming up. Lots of posts come. Meanwhile, enjoy the pictures and don't forget to stay tuned for my next post. Would be telling where to eat and visit in Boston.

Enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think in the comments below :)

The last day at Boston was a slow one. With us, just relaxing next to river Charles. It is a beautiful place to jog or do some photography. We did the latter :D

First of all the best time to visit Boston is in mid April-August. It is slow-paced, unlike New York which doesn't stop. You can relax here, get into intellectual debates, startle over the heritage buildings or drink hot chocolate at Harvard Square.

So here's a list of places you should visit while you're there. *These are strictly my choice and the places we visited.

MIT Museum
Charles River
Harvard University
Park Street- For Chapels, shopping, food and more
Harvard Square

Places to eat at while in boston

Au Bon Pain
Sebastians for pasta
Legal Sea Foods
La Burdick for hot chocolate

MIT treats


Until next time

MIT Boston: Part I

So my official trip began with the visit to Boston. We were staying at Hyatt Regency there. Let me tell you, the breakfast buffet over there- The BEST! My personal favorite- Lemon Poppy seeds muffin and their chopped potatoes. Also, the lady chef over there is so enthusiastic about food. She loves her job and that you could see in her style and food.

We were invited to take a tour of the MIT Media lab. The kind of research projects they are involved in are magnificent. We met people who had left hollywood (cinematographer), professors, mathematicians and what not. All they did was, follow their heart and that brought them here. Here is what I wore on Day 1.




The next day we had the opportunity to visit Google Boston. Woohoo! It was an amazing experience to see the 'inside of google office'. Their work culture, the people, the interiors- all are so different from rest of the offices. Well of course, it's google! We went to Park Street in Boston; to unwind and shop at Macy's. The day ended with dinner at Area Four.
I leave you with some more pictures.

The United States of America

Hey folks! I'm back with a series of posts! Sorry for being MIA, there's a lot going on. Perhaps you've forgotten me? (eh!) I hope not.




Here I am with the breaking news- I visited my dream city!!! Wohooo! So this is how it started-

Ever since I was a child, I was hard-working and determined. The obedient daughter I was; I never let my parents down. But somehow, over the years, my grades deteriorated. The more I studied, the perfect grades were a distant dream. But here I was, after all the 'mishaps' and 'fortunes', at a wonderful management school. Everything was going great- my grades started showing what I really deserve AND I was being appreciated for various skills. I finally found a place here.

It was just another day when a mail by a professor popped in. It said, - "Our college is partnering with MIT Media lab for RedX..." and so it continued. It was to take place in our campus itself and it had healthcare related projects. I was like, "em! Why not?" So I applied. Little did I know, it will give me life full of memories. I was the 16 chosen ones to be a part of the project and among the 4 students to be invited to MIT, Boston to take the projects forward. All of this? Fully sponsored!

Well, if you know me well you would know that New York is my dream city! And as fate led me, we visited New York after our official trip was over. Ah! The streets, the people, the weather, the food. Everything was perfect over there. We walked in central park, ate to our heart's content at Times square, were surprised when people held the door open just so that you could pass and the bland food was filled with simplicity and health. I loved each and every part of the 12 day trip.

Just want to thank God , my family and my school for giving me this blessed life that I was able to fulfill one of the biggest dreams of my life.

Just remember- Everything happens for a reason.
If I hadn't scored average marks in entrance exams, If I hadn't rejected a renowned IT company, if I hadn't believed in myself and applied here- I wouldn't have written this post. Just happy with my life and the people in it. Thank you everyone :) You too!

More posts coming!
Keep smiling
