I’ve been in Boston for approximately 2 days. After moving into my apartment, I walked to the store, exploring streets and shops along the way. Yesterday, I walked to the Boston Public Garden, saw the memorial day flags at the Boston Commons, walked to the top of Beacon Hill, marveled at the old homes, charged my phone at a local coffee shop, and ambled back to my dorm.
Today I start work! I am excited and also a little nervous. The first two days are training. I will be training with another Haverford intern who is working on the Boston Marathon archive project. It will be really nice to have a familiar face around for the first few days of work.
