For our first stop today, we went to Boston Public Library which is rated top 15 best library in the nation. I loved the library because of how it looked and because of how many books they had. My favorite part of the library is that there is an open space at the center of the library. Time to rely on Google maps to navigate to MIT! It didn’t go too well. We were sort of lost but we still ended up somewhere. We thought we missed the tour of the campus but there were actually no tours. Why? Wells, again I still don’t know if we are lucky or not because on the day we decided to visit MIT it was graduation day. Even though we were unable to have a tour of the campus with a tour guide, we were able to obtain a self-guided tour pamphlet. We followed the trail but had to end it half way because there was a section of it closed for graduation ceremony. We went back towards Boston Commons to go to the Black Heritage Trail office for a self-guided tour since we do not have enough time to attend a guided tour. We had to meet up with a youth group similar to CCDC, ACDC for a Chinatown tour and then a youth exchange afterwards. The tour is called See Town by A-AVOYCE, led by youths. I was really excited to attend the tour since I am a tour guide myself for CATs, Chinatown Alleyway Tours. It is interesting to be able to observe the different styles people use to tell stories or information during a tour. And I also enjoy being able to relate to the tour guide’s experiences. After the tour we had an exchange to share with one another about what they do and what we do in our communities.
On our next stop, we explored the Boston Market and later headed back to Prudential mall to go to the Skywalk Observatory. Half of Skywalk Bridge Observatory was reserved for a graduation celebration so we were only able to see half of it but we had a good discount to get into the observatory. And to end our day we had dinner at Wabora, a fusion of Japanese and Korean food. On our way home after we stopped by CVS to buy water for the next day.
