View of Boston from MIT

The last few days I walked a lot around Boston and Cambridge as I had my brother visiting from Greece, so we did a little bit of sightseeing, shopping and of course dining! We started off by exploring MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), which I hadn’t visited since I came in Boston back in September, except for shooting briefly the Ray and Maria Stata Center. This particular building is designed by my favorite architect Frank Gehry and this time I took the opportunity to shoot it from many angles, so be prepared for a full on architecture post in the near future!

Moving on, we headed to Harvard Square, visited the eponymous University and passed briefly from the Art Museums, so that I could shoot the atrium in daylight! I aimed at lunching in Alden & Harlow but it is open only for dinner, except for Sundays, when brunch is also served (which I have tried out and it was delicious), so we headed to Toscano for pizza (obviously)!

Since it was a nice day (last Friday) my brother and I headed to Fenway Park for some photos and memorabilia and then to Newbury street and the Prudential Center for some window shopping! My brother did some “damage” at Newbury Comics and G Star, where as I shopped at Ann Taylor (ok I got a t-shirt from Newbury as well)! And then it was time for some hot chocolate and cookies at Max Brenner (expect special post as well)! Aren’t those hug-mugs cute??

Next day (Saturday) we hit South End. It was freezing, but we still wandered to my favorite squares: Union Park and Rutland. We even got inside the Holy Cross Cathedral just before a wedding ceremony! The best part of the day was that after 4 whole months in Boston I finally dined in Legal Seafoods! I got a lobster roll and it was delicious!

Then it started snowing, so we bundled up and headed home!
