Vacation ‘s over

As we prepare for the first order of business in a busy week, we look back on a turbulent weekend full of the city that we are not going to be seeing much from in the coming fourteen days.

Our visits took us to Strand’s Used Bookstore, for students like us the closest thing to paradise that this city can offer. With 18 kilometers of bookshelves, this huge collection of books re-stocked the book shelves of many a member of our delegation with some good standard textbooks for our studies.

We also went to visit the USS Intrepid Museum, which included a trip to the world’s first strategic Submarine, the USS Growler. An interesting experience for students of Political Science.

So this vacation was not actually a vacation, but quite the study trip indeed. We do not seem to be able to get out of our skin after all.
