3/11 - 3/13/2008
Monday night, I stayed with a friend who's now a
post-doc at Boston University then, Tuesday, I
headed into Cambridge to see my Harvard peoples.
Omolulu on the subway.
Harvard Square; a beautiful day.
Waiting for Deji under the sculpture in the middle of the Square.
The view from Deji's window.
A familiar sight.
Mr. Ayodeji Ogunnaike. Real talk, we "been homies
since Superman drawers" (c) Obie Trice. Growing
up, Deji's older brother and I were best friends from
around the age of 9 on through high school; we were,

Arthur Huang. The dude is engaged.
The pink brings out the lustre in Jung's Korean eyes.
Yichen is a Godly woman.
Yichen's suite at Harvard.
Jung: a gentleman and a scholar.
Yichen: tired, but kind enough to put up with me until 2 AM.

I headed over to W20 to have lunch with Li Bian.
I posted up in this spot, on the 3rd floor of W20, around 5 PM.
I left around 1 AM.
Aditi: this girl is married.
Art came over to visit again; then Isabel came through
and introductions were made all 'round.
Isabel's man John Kim came through later, but I was
caught slipping and did not get a picture of him.
Probably best that I did not, the dude is too hot for the
Around 1 AM, Boris Alexeev came through to W20
and I headed over to his place to crash for the night.
Boris's roommate. He plays guitar like a rock star.
The bachelor life.
_The Road Home_
I told the guys that they were leading an idyllic bachelor life.
They liked the sound of that.
Idyllic bachelor breakfast.
Another window view.
My boy Andre Green and I got together in Kendall
to grab lunch right before I headed out via Amtrak.
Some mighty healthy looking Cosi pizza.
Kendall Square symphony.
The Charles-MGH T stop. I used to come through
