This was my first trip to Boston, and my hotel being across the way in Cambridge, I ended up spending the bulk of my time there so my Boston trip wasn’t really so much Boston, as it was Cambridge.

I found the area… odd.  Don’t get me wrong! It’s beautiful!  It was just this strange, isolated academia microcosm that didn’t seem to exist in the same world I had just come from.  It was utterly homogeneous, white and Asian and not much else.

One fantastic consequence of going solo was the opportunity to really people watch.  As I sat in the Algiers Cafe on a late Saturday morning I enjoyed a peaceful brunch of baba ganoosh and mint tea, passively listening to conversations going on around me and occasionally snapping a photo.

Then it was off to the MIT Campus. The Strata Center made for excellent camera fodder!
