The great glass pumpkin

Lisa’s parents are in town, and today we partook of a unique MIT tradition that I never experienced before: the Great Glass Pumpkin Patch. The glassblowing labs at MIT sell the pumpkins every year to raise money for their facilities. We got there at the right time: any earlier and we would have been waiting in line with the crowd, which stretched from the Kresge Oval into the Infinite Corridor; any later and the pumpkins would all be gone. As it was, we got a very nice six-inch glass pumpkin and I got some decent photos around campus. (I noticed while putting some of my photos in order this weekend that I had never taken any of the MIT campus. Shame, shame.)
