these past weeks have been.
This past weekend was Switzerland. The Alps are beautiful. We took a gondola up a mountainside and the view was incredible. I looked down in the valley, and the mountains were big and I was small. It was that simple.
Today, back in Metz the president of Georgia Tech came to visit, along with the CEO of Coke, his body guards, and other people more powerful than me. They came because it was the 20th anniversary of the Georgia Tech Lorraine program. There were white catering tents and a buffet line with strange meats and free Coke products. Two ladies dressed like flight attendants were hired just to say “Bonjour” to the incoming visitors. Probably a little overkill.
Tomorrow there will be a field trip to a WWII American cemetery at St. Avold and to a fortress on the Maginot Lines. Me being the tourist that I am, I am stoked.
This next weekend is Barcelona. Estoy listo.
