After not being able to make our plans yesterday, we tried our best to make the most of our time the next day. The Embassy Suites provided us breakfast, so it was one of the few days that we had a full sit-down breakfast. We headed first to the Boston Public Library, which is rated top 15 in the nation. I enjoy reading and going to the library a lot. The Boston library would definitely be an ideal place for me to study and read. It would be amazing if San Francisco had something similar. It reminded me a bit of San Francisco’s Main Library, but more grand and spacious. MIT was actually having their commencement on the day we arrived. The Boston team led us on a self-guided tour based on a map/tour sheet we got from the admissions office. For me, the most memorable part of the campus was the chapel. It had a very interesting design where it was a cylinder with an extended rectangular part. Inside the chapel, there were very unique lights hanging in the background at the front. We quickly stopped by the Black Heritage Trail tour office to get a self-guided tour map for the next day. Even though we couldn’t make their tour, we still wanted to go on the trail and learn about it. For lunch, we went to Chinatown and ate at a recently opened restaurant called Gourmet China. After lunch, we met up with a youth tour group similar to our Chinatown Alleyway Tours with a non-profit group called Asian Community Development Corporation (ACDC). Their youth tour group was called See-Town and was led by their youth program, A-VOYCE. The tour program was similar to CATs in the sense that it was youth-led, youth-run. It is a relatively young program, having started only two years ago. They also had a younger demographic, as the tour guides were able to join in middle school. Our own tour program catered more towards high school and college students. At the end of our tour, we stopped by their office and had some time to meet and interact with their youth. It was a great opportunity to share about the work that the youth at CCDC does and learn about the work youth in Boston were doing for their community. We then went to the Boston Public Market to explore. It reminded me of the Ferry Building that we had in San Francisco. They both had distinct small businesses that offer products not usually sold elsewhere. Afterwards, we went back to the Prudential Center to visit the Skywalk Bridge Observatory. We went right before the sun settled and was able to catch pictures of the city in good lighting. We also stayed a bit after to catch the city at sunset. For dinner, we went to a Japanese restaurant called Wabora. They were known for a fruit shaved ice bowl. I didn’t try the dessert, but the food was delicious as well.
