So, my brother Daniel came to visit a couple weeks ago (or as I prefer to call him, Poohead). It was a fun-filled weekend of tourist-ing, eating, and playing board games! We took him to the Minuteman National Historical Park in Concord. This is 5 out of the 16 miles that the American militiamen chased the redcoats back to the Boston Harbor on April 19th, 1775. It was pretty cool to see where the first fighting of the American Revolution took place!
The next day, we went to tour Cambridge..which is the home of many, many universities, including MIT. We tried to do this the day before, only to find parking was not free on Saturdays =(
|Daniel and JJ mapping how to get to Harvard Square from the only parking spot we could find...which was like a mile away!|

|More of Harvard|
|Um...what? These Harvard kids. They're crazy!|
After we were done walking around Harvard, we took a walk (a very long walk) to the MIT campus. It was a little more laid-back than the Harvard campus....
