Boston College and Shopping
The train ride was so much better because it was so much shorter. Once we got to Boston we took the trolley up Commonwealth Avenue where we saw Boston University and local shops. We arrived at Boston College and I was immediately impressed by the architecture and the history of the buildings.
During the informational session I learned that it was a Jesuit Catholic school. I was not so happy about that, especially since it was so integrated into the clubs and activities outside of school. Once we went on the tour, though, I slowly realized that the campus life and style was a possible match for me. I may not apply to the college but it helped me realize what I want and don't want.
After the tour we were off to eat and explore the city. We were able to pick up some souvenirs and do a little shopping.
The sales were great and the city was vibrant with colors and smells. Within one block you could smell the sewer, fresh fruit, then some perfume from a fellow pedestrian. It was an experience not to be forgotten.
