Boston -the most European city in the US

I always like the university cities which are famous for their student life and culture. Boston has Harvard and MIT and those universities are like myth in Turkey. If we have any friends studying or studied there, we give them privilege, respect, and admiration. It was great to see their campuses and say that Bogazici still has the best campus ever ­čÖé Anyway, Boston is really beautiful, really different. ┬á It was mostly sunny on the days of our visit on Dec 24-27 and I was warned to feel extreme cold but i turned out to be not true. I fell in love with its Cambridge (especially Harvard Square), Public Garden, Faneuil Hall Marketplace where you can find any food from any cuisine, sea foods, North End (Little Italy), historic streets, beautiful architecture and so on. It is a walkable city so we never used public transportation but do not forget we are fearless walkers. We stayed in Prudential Center and it was easier to walk both to Cambridge and North End.

Luckily it’s 4 hours away from NYC and I’ll most probably see it again in Spring.

Hope you go and fall in love as well.

S├Âz├╝n ├ľz├╝:

Boston diyince bir├žok ki┼či oray─▒ ├žok sevece─čime y├╝zde y├╝z garanti vermi┼čti de yine de ben ne kadar farkl─▒ olabilir ki diyordum ama ger├žekten bamba┼čka ve g├Âz al─▒c─▒ bir ┼čehirmi┼č. Tipik Amerikan ┼čehrindeki g├Âkdelenlerden olsa da mimarisi farkl─▒, tarihi, Avrupai ve ├žok ho┼č. Sokaklar─▒nda y├╝r├╝d├╝k├že mutlu eden ┼čehirlerden. Cambridge taraf─▒ MIT ve Harvard’─▒n oldu─ču en sevilen ve hareketli yeri, ├Âzellikle ├Â─črenciler i├žin. Deniz ├╝r├╝n├╝ yemeklerinde en iyi ┼čehir olabilir, deniz ├╝r├╝n├╝ ├žok yayg─▒n ve ├žok lezzetli ─▒stakozlar─▒, midyeleri ve istiridyeleri var. Sokaklar─▒ ├žok sevimli, dar, temiz, arnavut kald─▒r─▒mlar─▒ bile var. Biz Prudential Merkezi’nde kald─▒k, hem Cambridge taraf─▒na hem North End taraf─▒na y├╝r├╝mek i├žin kolay bir yer oldu.

Harvard ve MIT T├╝rkiye’de en ├žok bilinen ve sevilen Amerikan ├╝niversitelerdendir. Hatta orda okumu┼č/okuyan bir arkada┼č─▒m─▒z varsa gurur duyar, hava ataruz ba┼čkalar─▒na. O y├╝zden oralar─▒ g├Ârmek bizim i├žin g├╝zel oldu, ama yine de Bo─čazi├ži’nin kamp├╝s├╝ en g├╝zeli bana g├Âre.

Public Garden ve Faneuil Hall Marketi, Boston’un en sevdi─čim yerleri oldu. Faneuil’de her y├Âreden yemekler bulabilisiniz ve d├╝nya kadar deniz ├╝r├╝n├╝.

New York’a 4 saatlik mesafede olmas─▒ iyi bi ┼čans benim i├žin ki baharda da gidebilmeyi ├žok istiyorum Boston’a.

Umar─▒m yolunuz d├╝┼čer de siz de g├Âr├╝rs├╝n├╝z g├╝zelli─čini.
