On the morning of the 17th, Mom & I rolled out of bed (we didn't got into our hotel until a little after 1:00 a.m. the night before) at 5:30 a.m. and hopped into the car. We drove about 7 min. down the road to see a very empty campus at Yale University. Even though it was still dark out and cold, the campus was really lovely. After a 15 min. self- guided tour session, we jumped back in the car and started our journey toward Boston.
p.s. later that afternoon, the New Haven police caught the murder suspect in that same area!
