I am sure the students will have so much to say so I will make it brief for my part.

We had a wonderful time in Boston today visiting Tufts, MIT and Harvard. What was very special, for me—very, very special—was that for MIT and Harvard we had two 2008 graduates from Hercules as our tour guides.

Eric at MIT was just amazing, I told him he should be a professional tour guide, he was that knowledgeable. I know we would not have gotten half the inside look without him. He even took us down to the tunnel system, which, after the Pentagon is the longest tunnel system in the US. It was built to keep the students going to classes even during the worst blizzards. Students can ride their bikes or walk through them.

Harvard was a busy place today and Peter showed us a dorm room and the amazing freshman dining and dorm building which looked like a huge cathedral right out of Harry Potter.

All in all, a very enlightening, informative and fun day. We are all resting now in preparation for our formal dinner and meeting up with our new members, Zackery and Tiffany.

Thanks Prudence,

You are a fantastic chaperone. I am glad that you took this lovely pictures. Next year I probably should be in them, or maybe not.

Anyway, a very fun and productive day. I am also glad that the weather cooperated.

Take care.
