I was so excited for this day because we are visiting Harvard University! Harvard
University is my dream school, so I was so excited to learn more about it. Our original
plan was to self-tour the campus but by luck when we were heading out of the train
station I decided to walk the other way instead of exiting from the University side and
ended up bumping into a tour group. The tour costed 10 dollars and it was led by a
current Harvard Student. The student spoke in two tones, a tour guide voice and her
regular voice which I found interesting and it made the tour fun. One thing I enjoy doing
now is to pronounce Harvard as Harvard because the students there tends to drop their
“r’s” when talking. After the Harvard tour we self-guided the Black Heritage trail, led by
David Yi and me because we both took AP United States History. History is still fresh in
his mind but for me I had to review since I took AP United States History a year ago. We
were able to successfully give the tour to our group and through it, I was able to review
and learn new information.
After all the tours and all the walk we finally took a break by eating pho in
Chinatown. After eating Pho in Chinatown we headed back to the Boston Common to
attend a Freedom Trail Tour. I loved the tour for the Freedom Trail because the tour
guide was very interactive and funny. Even though we were all tired since it was towards
the end of the trip. I highly recommend anyone to attend a Freedom Trail tour at Boston!
The tour ended at Faneuil Hall and we walked over to Quincy Market to buy dinner, the
lobster roll was delicious! Also we were able to see street performers outside of Quincy
Market. After exploring Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall we went over to Mike’s Pastry
to try out their cannoli. The line to buy the cannoli was incredibly long but it was worth it
because the cannoli tasted good.
