Boston take 2

I have a few more favourite photos (stolen from Jenpen, Scarl and Marie) ohh and some interesting facts to tell you :-)

The Boston Tea Party was an act of direct action by the American colonists against Great Britain in which they destroyed many crates of tea bricks on ships in Boston Harbor. The incident, which took place on Thursday, December 16, 1773, has been seen as helping to spark the American Revolution. 45 tons of tea were poored into the harbour waters that day worth an estimated £10,000. THATS ENOUGH TEA TO MAKE 24 MILLIONS CUPS!!!

Famous Harvard drop outs are Bill Gates and Matt Damon however those that managed to graduate include 4 US presidents and T.S Elliot. Harvard's library contains over 15 million volumes making it the largest academic library in the world. Ohhhh and they created Facebook there ;-)
