Thomer writes home from MIT, Cambridge

You can read heavily edited/censored, copies of e-mails that I sent/send to friends and family. I write about my life at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States. Some pages contain photos.

Note: I cut out and changed many parts of almost all e-mails to make them "web-worthy". Consequently, transitions and flow may seem awkward.
