Last year, Vicky and I spent eight days in Greece, relaxing on the islands and driving around the Peloponnese. Definitely one of the best vacations we’ve ever had.

Today, I think, was my first 4th of July outside of America. The program did a pretty reasonable job of making us feel at home. We had the day off of school to begin with. Next, we went to a supermarket, bought $400 worth of food/supplies on Harvard’s dime, and went to the Gulf of Finland. The Gulf of Finland is a beach, sort of. If you were back home, it wouldn’t be a beach you would rush to.
