Salem, MA

On Friday, while most of America was busy with turkey sandwiches and football, Yoojin, Colette and I took the commuter train up to Salem, MA. For those who don't know, Salem is known for the witch hysteria which happened there in 1692.

We toured one of the Witch Museums, went to the House of Seven Gables (picture) and Nathaniel Hawthorne's House, the first candy shop in America (where I learned that the Gibralter is the oldest candy).

It's been a nice, relaxing break so I am not looking forward to hitting the books again for the run up to finals!
