One of my objectives when choosing an internship away from 'home' was to get a feel for a different area of the country, and to explore. I thought I'd put my explorations into a different part of the website, and add pictures.
First of all: Providence. This is what my apartment building looks like. Sort of old.
First Friday of the summer, I went up to Boston to visit a good friend of mine from college, Kenny. He's from the suburbs of Boston, and he went to show me around the city. I've always liked Boston the past times I've visited, but those were all so long ago that I only have snippets of memories about them. He took me into the middle of the city where we went out for Italian food, and cannolis. Such a cute neighborhood. Then went over to Cambridge to go to a 'whose line is it anyway' type comedy show. Very good trip.
Saturday I spent mostly by myself, sitting on a nice patch of grass on the Brown Campus, reading my book. Very relaxing. Then I went out with my roommates' girlfriend to the mall, which turns out to only be a 20 minute walk from where we live. Sad part is, to get to the mall one goes downhill... but to come back, tired, one has to truck up. The campus is quite pretty, and I love the Capitol, as it looks very similar to the one in DC. The Engineering Building leaves something to be desired though... Too modern.
Sunday, I went with Monica, and some of her roommates to one of the beaches. Amazing how they are only 30-40 minutes drive away! I'm used to several hours! It was an extremely sunny day, yet breezy, so not unbearable, and so there was an enormous amount of people on the beach. The water was freezing though... hope it will get better by the end of the summer.
