Come take my version of a tour of Harvard Square :) Today was supposed to be rainy and overall unpleasant day weather-wise, but to my surprise it turned out absolutely beautiful – sunny and a wonderful 7 degrees (sorry Americans, but I still talk in celsius). After class, I hopped across the river (well, rode the T…) and took a nice stroll around Harvard Square.

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of the red brick :

Oh I so want to take my bike down from my apartment too :

Not sure what this first one is, some kind of café on Arrow St. off of Mass. Ave. – The second (Zinneken’s) I actually went to. It’s on Mass. Ave. and really adorable and bonus, the person who appeared to be the owner was French… don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to hear someone answer the phone in French. I heard (overheard) them saying the place has only been open a few months.

 

The Harvard Book Store – worthwhile checking out just to see all the events they have going on :

What I love about Harvard Square the most: Out Of Town News and Crimson Corner – you can pretty much find most international magazines and newspapers here, and usually they aren’t too behind, which is really something to say. I also love the dusty, bow-tied Harvard professor that tend to crawl out of Out Of Town News :

 

I guess a picture of Harvard is mandatory at this point. It’s kind of an attraction (ha.) I think these are residences, just off of Harvard Yard  – ahem, “Hahvahd Yahd” with the accent. Which brings me to the saying that everyone recites when talking about the Boston accent: “pahk yah cah in hahvahd yahd” – What? Someone is going to have to explain this to me once and for all, because you most definitely cannot “park your car in harvard yard”…
