Second US Business Trip Getaways Part 1


September is almost over and I haven't posted anything about how I spent my weekends here in the US. It's been three months already! (What were you doing Chrisma?!) I know, I was being lazy but I will try to wrap up the places I have visited for the past three months.

For my first month (July), I was just visiting some nearby lakes, parks, and farms in Connecticut. It's summer and it would be a total waste not to go outside! Here are some of my photos.

Sylvan Lake in Watertown, CT
Buttonwood Farm Sunflowers in Griswold, CT
Elizabeth Park in West Hartford, CT

During the second month (August), I went to more places in Connecticut.

Blueberry and Peach Picking at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, CT

Took a trip to Yale again and tried the 1.50USD bus ride:

Yale University in New Haven, CT

And finally saw hot air balloons in action for the first time:

Hot Air Balloon Festival in Plainville, CT

One of my coworkers has already arrived, who was very willing to do some long drives so we went to New Jersey to visit my aunt and visited Princeton University the next day:

Princeton University in Princeton, NJ (my third Ivy-League school visit!)

On the third month (September), we went even farther this time and finally visited Niagara Falls.

And went to NYC to visit Lady Liberty again:

Then visited Harvard again:

Harvard University in Cambridge, MA

So these are the places I have visited for the first three months of my second visit here in the US. I have two more months so I need to make most out of the time left before I go home. I will be posting the part 2 really soon! :)
