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…
