Following the previous notes about the Tournament of Champions, I made this notes which focus about the art galleries, museums, and other tourist attractions I visited while in the US. Hope you enjoy!
*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.
To sum it up, the museum is full of things like stones, minerals, as well as collections of ancient animal skulls, bugs, and some traditional items from around the world. Although the bug and animal skull collections are not necessarily the things I would enjoy to see, it’s pretty interesting to go around and find out what other kinds of collections they have.

I’ve been wanting to write a review about this book since several years ago. The Little Prince is one of the most famous classic book, and many people has mistaken it as a children book. For me, it make sense why people thought that way. The book itself is really thin, the word choices are relatively easy to understand, and there are so many illustrations in it.
