    I love this part of the States and can only imagine what it would be like to go to school there. Great pictures of all the architecture. I need to go visit.

  • The architecture is rather interesting. I didn’t know you could find buildings like these in the area.
    Would love to see Harvard and all the books.

  • I have always been interested in Harvard since I learned about Smoots as a unit of measurement. MIT is sort of a icon for physicist nerds like me.

  • Elaine J Masters

    I’ve only strolled through parts of Harvard but it looks like I missed the most interesting. I definitely need to see the MIT part of Cambridge with that cool architecture.

  • When I think of Harvard, I don’t think of romance. You have shown me a different side. Do the museums get crowded at certain times?

    Love Cambridge in the UK (also brilliant for romance!) and in the US. Both gorgeous places to visit, especially with a partner…
