Rochester is a beautiful part of upstate New York. Settled right on the coast of Lake Ontario, this city is home to University of Rochester School of Medicine, where I attended a medical school interview. The entire stay was wonderful and I had a great time interviewing as well!
|Big, big sky somewhere over Iowa (hello missionaries!).|
|Ben and Celeste were ideal hosts, and cooked for us every night.|
My friend Dave and I interviewed one day apart from each other, so we decided to spend the weekend there together. While Dave was in his interviews, I wandered around in downtown Rochester, eating at the delicious Dinosaur Grill, visiting the Eastman School of Music, and photographing interesting architecture.
|The colors in this photo are my favorite. Also I enjoy the rhythm of the windows and staircases.|
|Ugliest building in Rochester. Like a car accident, I just couldn't tear my eyes away from it. It says "Times Square" above its gloomy double doors.|
|Rochester used to have a subway system, which has been abandoned, leaving behind some cool looking bridges. I saw some amazing graffiti in there but was too afraid of getting mugged to photograph it.|
|Construction scaffolding at the Manhattan Park (even though Long Island is 6 hrs away from Rochester)|
|Niagra Falls! There's Canada in the background. We rode the Maid of the Mist, but naturally I kept my camera well-covered.|
|The Sacred Grove in Palmyra. I was surprised to see how close it is to the Smith Family Farm. You can tell you walk upon hallowed ground amongst those trees.|
|That's the Palmyra Temple you see through the trees. They had to cut out a hole in the foliage so we could see it from where I'm standing on the Smith Family property.|
|Dave and I on our way home in our SWEET rental car! Thanks Hertz!|
