For my first time to the northeast U.S., I flew out to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to visit my best friend, Veronica, and her friends at Lehigh University. Veronica and Daniel (boyfriend) guided me throughout the city, showing off the beautiful Gothic architecture of campus and historical, now rustic, steel mills near the river. They also brought me along to follow the Marching 97 as they chanted and performed to “Fly, Eagles, Fly” for the Super Bowl the following Sunday. Despite the frigid weather and snow, I had a great time exploring and learning about their everyday lives up at Lehigh. Thank you both for allowing me to stay in your home and providing one of the best weekend getaways!
