Mon 8 Mar 2010 - Tue 9 Mar 2010
Last night I made rosemary pork chops for dinner, (which I know will make my mother very proud) and we all had a glass of wine. It's so unusual for us to be able to legally buy alcohol, so that will take a little bit of getting used to. I feel sorry for everyone who won't be 21 when they get back home!
Today will be the second day of classes. Right now I only have two real classes. One is Irish Culture Seminar which only meets on Wednesday. The other is Cross Cultural Symbology. I can already tell that symbology is going to be a lot of fun. It's taught by Keiko Miller, who is a tiny Japanese woman. she is always making hilarious comments, and doing things that make us laugh. In our fist class, in addition to the normal lecture, we meditated and had tea time.
The weather here has been so nice! All the locals keep telling us how unusual it is for it to be so sunny and nice all the time. We hope it lasts!
