However, my first night in Cambridge, I was tired and starving! I went down to the eating hall and sat at the table next to two girls that seems very nice. Turns out they were more than nice! They are outstanding. I met Melissa from Singapore and Maria from Italy. We have many of the same beliefs and values. It was so refreshing and reassuring to find them straight away. Since that first night we have done many things together.....like walks, dinners, late night chats, dance party, library tours.....

|I loved all the varities!|
|The boiled egg was great!|
Maria lives out of college in an apartment! She invited our group...that has expanded to include some more incredible people! Ellen from China and Charlene from France... Maria invited all of us for pizza...homemade by a real Italian! Take that pizza hut!
The evening was delightful. She had slippers ready for each of us to wear! The apartment was sooo classy. The background music was perfect. And so there we sat together sharing our cultures and loving the time.
I have come to the realization that what makes Cambridge so outstanding is truly the people. They come from everywhere. We all were drawn to this place for some reason. Their goals, plans, and research projects show their deep committment to making a difference. We will be here all mixed together...working through the readings, lectures, classes--expanding our perspectives. Who know's what these people will do next!? That's the awe of Cambridge...the sense of becoming!
