*A Short Visit to Boston*
I had a chance to go to Boston with my friends on the free day during the WSC program. We then decided and went for a stroll around the Harvard campus area, before we were freezing because of the weather and entered Harvard Museum of Natural History.

For you that don’t know yet, Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese artist who is focus on making sculpture and installation. But one thing that really unique is, she always makes her artwork using polka-dots.
