A couple of months ago I had opportunity to visit Boston, MA, USA.  Though it was winter on occasional warm sunny days I could go out for site seeing.  As I was in Cambridge the first place I visited is Charles River.

Charles River which runs 129 Km starting from Echo Lake in Hopkinton passes through 23 cities and towns before ending into Boston Harbor.  The four Universities on the banks of the river are Brandels University, Boston University, Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Here are few pictures of the river in Cambridge

The geese here are carefree.  They move about freely not afraid of pedestrians.  Here along the river there is 37Km of bikers path starting at Science Museum running through Harvard, MIT and Boston Universities.  I saw few people running and jogging along this path.
