OLS 2004 BLOG, Day 1 – Hotel@MIT

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 4:00 AM

So, at long last, we made it to Boston. We’re staying at the hotel
with the silly name, Hotel@MIT. Silly
name, but lavish accomodations. Full amenities included, and weird and
wonderful stuff wherever you turn. Pictures of our hotel room to
follow later – it’s pretty messy at the moment.

After relaxing at the hotel, and taking a very-badly-needed shower, we
ventured out for lunch. We found ourselves in a nice Indian
restaurant, just a few blocks from the hotel, where we had the lunch
buffet. Then we started walking toward Harvard Square, down
Cambridge’s Massachusets avenue (I think). I took a few

drawn wall
some house
lovely inner courtyard

Sadly, our trip didn’t last very long, as I managed to rip a very
large hole in my pants, in a fairly strategic location. We turned
around and went back to the hotel. Defeated, we went to sleep “for
just an hour”, and woke up at 2 AM. So much for our first day in


  1. In case you make a stopover in the New York/New Jersey area, here’s some tips to make you sound New York/Italian.
    Take the F word and change the u to awl and then freely insert it every third or fourth word.
    Example, suppose you accidentally bump into to someone…
    eh… you want I should keek yo fawlkin ed in ?
    Seriously, I’ll keek yo fawlkin ed right down yer fawlkin trote.
    This tip, along with it’s liberal use, should make you blend right in.
