1-6 July 2018
On arriving at Boston, we check into our airbnb flat. It is atrocious. We leave within 5 minutes and move to the lovely 4* Charles Hotel (and fight for a refund from the mis-advertised airbnb!). Monday morning is Alex's first day of idTech Camp for Roblox Engineering! He is one of only 2 students in the class, taught by college student "Meatball". Alex loves it! Meanwhile Jana get to reminisce over her alma mater, Harvard University. We love the new Student Centre & excellent cafe. We venture into the depths of a insanely busy Boston riverside for 4th of July, but don't stay for the fireworks. Friday afternon after Alex's presentation of his course work, we get our only real sightseeing in -- visiting the USS Constitution "Old Ironsides" and having our last meal in teh famous Boston North End - the Italian district. We discover one of the top stores in the USA selling "Magic the Gathering" cards, Alex is happy!
