The Harvard rub

Here’s more action from Boston. In the shot below tourists rub John Harvard’s toes in a desperate attemp to resurect them. This is what many experts over the years have called “The Harvard Rub,” or trying to wake up a snow-covered toe (aka foot finger).

See more shots of Boston and Cambridge, here.

  1. Did you rub them as well? It’s said to bring good luck 🙂

  2. The ‘foot finger’ reminded me of an item we spotted on a Romanian menu in Brasov– “Chicken Thumbs” which of course turned out to be chicken fingers!
