What’s up Pomona!
My last night in Barcelona, I ran into a bunch of kids from Pomona. They’re getting ready to study abroad in Edinburgh and traveling around before their classes start. It was pretty awesome hanging out with them and reminded me of a lot of the things I loved about Pomona. Particularly, being surrounded by incredibly bright, generally friendly and unpretentious kids who hold interesting opinions about important things. Also snack, god do I miss snack. If anyone at Pomona is reading this, you will not realize quite how fantastic it is to have pretty-decent food prepared at every meal, with no effort or financial expenditure on your part, until that’s gone.
It was somewhat strange for me to be in the position of the wizened elder imparting advice about Europe/study abroad, but I tried to be helpful. My biggest piece of advice is to suckle at the teat of Rich Uncle Pomona as long and as hard as possible. Also, the Louvre is free on Fridays from 6-9 pm if you’re under 26.
So yeah, if any Pomona kids happen to wind up any of the same places that I’m staying and want to meet up for drinks or hang out, feel free to drop me a line.
