3rd May, 2018. Terminal 3, IGI Airport, the stage was set for our departure to THE US of A.
The excitement was racing in my veins. The ticket to Boston was in my hand and the plane was about to take off. Within 20 hours, we were in Massachusetts. Going to a place that great gives me the chills even now. The first location that was to be explored was… HARVARD UNIVERSITY. We were guided by Noah (our tour guide), who gave us hints of some mysterious incidents that the place had seen in the past.
To maintain the momentum of the trip we opted to go to MIT the following day. The science geeks had proven themselves yet again. They had a roller coaster in their backyard and a cop’s car on the top of the building. Who says science guys aren’t cool?
After looking at places which ask of great academic results, you need some self-confidence and relaxation. Guess what? We went to the Niagara Falls and also saw the ‘scrapers of Manhattan. Relaxation done, it was now time for gaining some self-confidence. For that, we reached main destination of our expedition. On 11th May we entered the gates of NASA for the “Space Pass Program”. The two-day long program included a guided tour of the NASA launching and manufacturing facility and attending various presentations based on the past expeditions and on the ones that are planned for the future.
Education was now over for the trip. Now was the time to do some fun. Universal Studios was what we had in the plan to make the trip perfect. This marked the end of our stay in the United States of America. The trip will never be forgotten, it had everything that you could have, and in good company.
