Grandmother cam down from Williamsburg for a one night visit. As always she has lots of stories to tell about the international students she meets. (She lives very near the college of William and Mary) We heard about the 15 year old physics genius from Indonesia studying for her Doctorate and and who spent the blackout staying at grandmother’s.
After hurricane Isabel, a student from Turkey was very impressed with the way everyone pulled together to get things cleared up, and with the random strangers from out of town that showed up to repair buildings. “Your city is better than the city I come from. This is amazing. In my city none of this would be cleaned up. We would still be under trees, and everyone would be yelling and hating everyone else. The difference is that you are Christians.”
