    That's a little sad, but different strokes...

    Hit me up when you're around. I'm at a course during the day friday and on saturday morning, but should definitely have some free time to meet up. I might even wear that red jacket so you recognize me.

    Redline is maybe my least favorite bar in DC. Although they do sometimes show fights there, so I end up going.

    Looking forward to it.

    If you wear that jacket, you'll just look like some tour guide.

    Is it safe for a woman to walk around Boston in broad daylight? I am serious. I am just clueless.
    I mean you can't do that in Baltimore (knock on Stichie).

    Yes it is. I'm not American, and I've only been in Boston/Cambrdige for a semester, but even I know it's safe to walk in boston in daylight, even at night I wouldn't worry much. No need to be so paranoid. The world is a much safer place than you'd think.

    Thanks, dude. Let's hope you're right on that.

    I've been in many places that are deemed dangerous, and I've always been surprised by how helpful people generally are. I've also met plenty of women traveling all by themselves, and I've never heard any bad stories. As long as you have common sense and aware of your surroundings you'll be fine pretty much anywhere in the world, except for warzones and things like that.

    Anyways, I always find it strange how little Americans know about their own country. Traveling in the US isn't expensive at all, especially if you travel by bus. Domestic flights are pretty affordable as well, and there's loads of cheap hotels and hotels.

    Harvard square is fine. Around boston is fine. She just shouldn't head too far down on the red line. I'd say going past south station if you don't know the area is probably not the best, but it's fine during the day.

    Just as long as she doesn't end up in dorchester...

    I wouldn't spend more than an hour in Cambridge/Harvard. I don't think tourists can enter nice buildings such as the library, and the town itself is pretty shitty. Some university buildings look ok on the outside, but I don't get why there are always so many tourists.

    LOL - I would not go to Georgetown University nor George Washington University because there is really nothing to see there. My wife is interested in attending school in Boston (LML).

    Haha, I was amazed by the hordes of foreign tourists that are there every day, all rubbing John Harvard's foot, while I'm pretty sure people relieve themselves on it the preceding night.

    See above.

    I'll think of more places to eat later, but honestly those are probably the best ones I know.

    I enjoyed Myers and Chang. :hide:

    For lunch on Saturday, I recommend a dim sum or noodle place in Chinatown.
