I'm in Richmond, VA, for my senior sociology trip. Yesterday we went to the Southern Sociological Conference to hear presentations. Some were better than others... But overall it was pretty sweet and I got a cool bag & nametag that made me feel rather professional. We're eating pretty good too (that it, when we do eat- my DC money is quickly depleting...). Today we had thought of going to Washington, DC, but decided to go somewhere a little closer. So within the hour we'll be traveling to Jamestowne, VA. We've had an average temperature of 80* which has made my joy complete. I also love the people on this trip. We're very indecisive, but it's really low key. We're staying in an absolutely beautiful church (with wireless :-)) in little bedrooms. Last night we watched The Kite Runner in the youth group room. Not as good as the book, can I hear a witness?
We have to go back to Upland tomorrow, but I'm not thinking about that now. I brought a bit of homework for the long drive, but I actually did bring a for fun book too- Love in the Time of Cholera by GGM. It's making me want to go back to the Carribean. I should have read it over Christmas, silly me.
