Hiyas! Hope you all are having a lovely Sunday! Schedule-wise, the end of my week became a little hectic, so I didn't get a chance to put up the second installment of my Providence trip. This post will be a little bit pic heavy since we covered a lot on Day 2. Hope you all enjoy!
We started out the day by meeting up with our friend and grabbing breakfast at Loui's Family Restaurant on Brook St. My little sister said they had been featured on the Food Network on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives", so we decided to give it a try. I has also visited Yelp.com to check for recommendations. Here's what we ordered...
My lil sister had ordered a combo with 2 eggs, toast and homefries.
The three of us also shared a stack of pumpkin pancakes (yummy).
My friend and I both ordered the "Drunk Johnny" because that's what Guy Fieri (host of the show) ordered. Needless to say, if you like corn beef hash, this is a pretty delicious choice.
After leaving with our bellies full, my lil sister said she wanted to show us a pretty view over the Brown University campus. Along the way I saw...
View of campus from the Sciences Library
Statue of Marcus Aurelius (Roman emperor)
Beautiful stained glass windows in Sayles Hall.
The largest Hutchings-Votey organ in the world is also housed in Sayles Hall. My little sister said she did some exploring in the basement with some friends and she came across a tombstone in one of the closets (o_O). We tried to go and see it, but sadly, there were people in the classroom that she had discovered it in.
Oldest building on campus, University Hall, built in 1770.
We then went on to visit the John Hay Library where we were told housed 3 books bound in human flesh. We spoke with the librarian and she showed us this one, the "Dance of Death." The other, which we didn't have a chance to see, was not surprisingly, on human anatomy...creepy...
I also saw this pretty clock in one of the library hallways and when I took a pic, it came out hauntingly beautiful.
After we finished exploring the library, we went on to visit the mall and saw "Magic Mike (yes, we dragged our male friend along, tehe ^__^)." Sadly, I didn't really think the movie turned out to be that great.
We grabbed food quickly after the movie and went for an hour of archery (hadn't done it since 5th grade). I thought it was a lot of fun. It definitely requires technique. Thankfully, the staff gave us mini lessons and were extremely helpful.
We ended our day with some delicious sushi at Sakura.
My friend had the Sweetheart roll with 2 sides of Ikura.
My lil sister and I shared the sides of Miso soup and salad that came with...
Our Yam roll (this was delicious by the way)!
