ex animo

Sometimes you don't realize how good something is until you've lost it. The life here at Hotel Providence has been an amazing experience. It was relaxing, energizing, and fun. Tonight is the last night I'll be spending at Hotel Providence for quite a while.

Aside from that, today we experienced good weather, good food, and good company. It was a relatively sunny day, and we decided to each brunch at Caffe Tazza. The service at the Cafe was friendly and quick. We ate a filling and satisfying meal before returning to the hotel to relax before our big trip to Boston.

Caffe Tazza's amazing Huevos Rancheros.

We enjoyed Boston's scenery, barely missing a seemingly exciting parade. We experienced riding Boston's subway system; the T. We got to see Fenway Park and ate ice cream to combat the humid and hot weather. We made our way back to our car, but before we knew it it was already 5:00 P.M. We got dressed for dinner at Radius, and relaxed in the restaurant until our guest, Amy Tan showed up. Amy is an alumni of Brown, and a friend of Grace who we had met earlier.

The dinner was good and the service was great. Amy, Andrew, and I feasted upon their burger and fries. The others ordered extravagant meals befitting of a fine restaurant like Radius. Amy happily answered any and all of the questions we had for her. The best part of the dinner was hearing her own personal experience at Brown. It has been influencing to hear two accounts from Brown alumni about how amazing the Brown University experience is.

We went back to the hotel to get some rest and relaxation. Tomorrow we move into the dorms, so we are all very excited. I'm happy to be sleeping in dorms from now on, but it is a bittersweet feeling. I will miss Hotel Providence, the dinners with alumni, and the college tours. However, it is time to move on with this journey!
