Campus Tour

I needed a break from work, so I decided to go through some of my recent photos. I thought that perhaps you’d enjoy taking a little photo tour of the MIT campus and environs. Let’s go!


A Chi O: Once you pop, you can’t stop.

This poster welcomes new pledges to the Alpha Chi Omega sorority. It was displayed prominently in a central campus corridor. Am I the only one who finds it a bit off-color?”So,” Dennis asked when he saw the photo, “have you tried all 31 yet?”

Perhaps they could combine the Baskin-Robbins reference with a Frito Lay reference and add a catchy slogan at the bottom: “Nobody can eat just one!”

I’m a bartender at the Thirsty Ear pub, where I work every Wednesday night from 10 PM to close. Here’s a shot of me on the job. Sampling such a wide variety of beers has made me quite the beer connoisseur, but it may have somewhat stifled my chugging skill.


OK, so I still have to work on swallowing faster
if I really want to drink from the tap.


When you’re scoping out the sunbathing chicks at BU,
it helps to pretend you’re taking pictures of modern sculpture.

The esplanade along the nearby Charles River is a beautiful place for a walk. The river is filled with sailboats and swans and the Boston skyline looms on the horizon. I took this photo last semester before the winter set in, and now that springtime is near I can’t wait to start running again.

If you want a cheap lunch, the food trucks near the biochemistry building are the way to go, especially if you’re not too afraid of food poisoning. Fiona and I visit the trucks every Thursday afternoon. Usually she orders the curry chicken, but one week she decided to try something new, so she ordered the mustard chicken. Turns out that the mustard chicken is just the curry chicken with a gigantic dollop of yellow mustard squirted on top. So be careful what you order

.
I love how this little “Sandwiches” box painted on the side of the truck illustrates
the variety of animals that can be killed and put between bread for you.
It’s hard to tell from the photo, but the lamb has a frightened expression on its face.


Ruggles, Haymarket, Wonderland…

The Boston subway, known as the T. MIT and Harvard are one stop apart on the red line, which goes from Braintree to Alewife. Lots of places in Boston have funny names like that.
