Other side of the Charles

Auntie Lil (and her flatmate who has no idea yet how much noise 1 year olds make) are kindly hosting us in their lovely wooden New England clapboard-style house, right on the edge of the Harvard campus.  The campus is beautiful, I'll be posting a few photos soon.  The wooden houses are similar in some ways to the ones you find in Australasia, but some of them are enormous, just absolutely enormous (the biggest we've seen so far was Julia Child's house -- it's the size of a German castle, but built with the same materials as a New South Wales villa -- and the climate is decidedly different from New South Wales so I shudder to think of the cost of heating!)
