If any of you have attended one of my MIT info sessions, either on campus or on the road, you've heard me talk about MIT's 2+ miles of underground tunnels. On mornings like these (3 degrees when I left the house), I am very grateful for these tunnels as I travel from the T to my office.
It took me 6 months to really get my bearings down there. Prior to that, it was like playing a video game - lots of exploring and getting lost and seeing certain landmarks 4 times before realizing that I was traveling in circles. :-)
Now that I'm more familiar with the tunnels, the journey tends to be a rather monotonous one. Until today.
Turning the corner yielded butterflies!
And then we find some signage hung from the overhead pipes...
Followed by some letters (figure this one out, folks).
Going up a flight of stairs, we find... hubcaps?
The last leg of my journey dumps me into the Infinite, where I find this heart (it looks much cooler in person). Click the photo to view a closeup, and for the uninitiated, here's some history on IHTFP.
Oh, and someone pulled a brilliant hack this morning, turning Lobby 7 and the Infinite into Super Mario Bros, but I think Matt will be covering that.
