Above: Me looking collegiate outside the Harvard Department of East Asian Languages and Civilization.

I recently went on a big East Coast adventure around Massachusetts including Salem, Marblehead, Malden, Ipswich, and Harvard University! Here are some pics from fun timez on a major Ivy League campus–yes, it was a total Rory Gilmore moment for me.

Starting off our adventure having lunch–I got a bourbon cocktail, of course.

Above: The Harvard Museum of Natural History was totally worth the visit. Also surprising about this trip–I’m surprised all these museums allow photography!

Above: I don’t mean to brag, but the UBC Beatty Biodiversity Museum here in Vancouver has a way better collection of things in jars, but the ones above here at the Harvard museum are nice, too!

Above: I loved this tiny little church right in the heart of Harvard’s campus!

Above: Doesn’t this look like a post card? This is the student dining hall, and I swear there is no filter or any photo adjustment on this one above–it was just the light and time of day.

Above: this is inside the dining hall/theatre thing of the image above. Did you know this stained glass window was made by a woman? This is the Brimmer Memorial Window, designed and executed by one Sarah Wyman Whitman, installed in 1898!
