Afternoon at Harvard University in Cambridge
Our visit to the Harvard University Campus in Cambridge
The Harvard campus was probably more beautiful and nicer than Columbia and NYU combined. It was a nice convergence of red bricks and green grass, and there were chairs free to use on the grass. To visit Harvard university, people were taking tours of the campus, some were students of the Summer School, and some others just relaxed on the grass while taking advantage of the free wi-fi, reading or sleeping!
If you’re looking for a great guided tour of Harvard university, you will love this 70-minute Harvard tour. You will learn all there is to know about Harvard’s history, landmarks and famous alumni, all from a Harvard student!
The bookshop of Harvard University
We walked way too much just to find 1253 Massachusetts Street which was right in front of us from the start!!!
We first took a stroll around the campus, which was really nice, then I wanted to stop by the shop to get yet another university shirt. But we couldn’t find the right number on the street, went the wrong way to find it, took a walk around the other part of the campus, took more pictures, took a wrong street, followed by another one, were amazed at the « village-likeness » of the city of Cambridge (and felt that it was more Cambridge in Harvard than the contrary!, and finally found the shop who was just a few meters away from where we first started to look for it but on the wrong side. Well, that was the Bookstore, but unlike Columbia, the Bookstore doesn’t sell the shirts. So we had to go a few meters further, to the ShirtStore, which is where we were at the beginning. I am forever thankful for the fact that I have a very resilient husband.
At the Harvard BookStore we found the curious yet amazing book-making robot that I would have loved to use ! Here’s everything about it : Custom-printing.
