Boston… First snow

Charles River

Boston has many meaning for me. It was a dream, a goal, new friends, English speaking experience, new culture, and new challenge.

Boston is the capital of the U.S state of Massachusetts, and it was founded in 1630 by Puritan colonist from England. Its nicknamed is “The walking City”. This was a student travel, because I needed to do an internship to get my Urban Design degree that I was studying in Venezuela Central University. It was a wonderful opportunities to me in many aspects. Thought I got clarity about what I would like to be in the following years. My best roommate was Adriana; actually I am grateful for having her as a friend nowadays. We did the project internship together and 18 was our qualification. Back Bay was place to do that project, we had written about its urban spaces, streets, how building conform the urban border.

Back Bay has Victorian brownstone homes and it is considered one of the best-preserved examples of 19th century urban design in the United States. It was influenced by Haussmann’s renovation of Paris. Numerous notable building you can find there as a Trinity Church, The John Hancock Tower, Boston Public Library.

Marvelous moments

As a part internship we had to give a speech to Fenway Community. My student group was conforming for Carola, Abigail, Adriana, Isabella and I. Carola was who gave that because she could speak in English very well. Carola did a very well done job, in my opinion.

We visited the Harvard University, and we could see a final project term I really enjoyed it. Also I looked up the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Boston University. I thought Oh my god in this place I would like to study I felt amused.

The day before I came back to Venezuela, had started to snow a little bit as you can imagine I was really impressed it was my first time I saw the snow.

Everyday my friend made me talk in English they did not help sometimes; they said that I had to practice my English. While I was studying Urban Design I studied English as well. I finished it maybe a year after. I usually did talk with my boyfriend who is not anymore! That’s life.

“As we live and as we are, Simplicity – with a capital “S” – is difficult to comprehend nowadays. We are no longer truly simple. We no longer live in simple terms or places. Life is a more complex struggle now. It is now valiant to be simple: a courageous thing to even want to be simple. It is a spiritual thing to comprehend what simplicity means.”
