Where in the hell am I?

Weekend vacation

Filed under: archaeology — Tags: — John @ 9:06 pm

I’m in Virginia right now. My little sister Tina is graduating from Bridgewater College this Sunday. She was 4-and-a-half years old when she was at my college graduation. At that time in my life, I was getting ready to move to Austin, to get my master’s degree in Latin American Studies, but focusing on modern Peruvian social history and politics. Not sure what I was gonna do with that.
One thing that freaks me out now being East is how much older the architecture is. Just don’t see Colonials and 200+ year old barns in Texas or Oklahoma. Here, I assume no one blinks an eye at something Depression-era. I can’t even imagine working in Europe!
Enjoy your weekend!

  1. We freak out when a can scatter dates to pre-1900 out here…crazy how different our country really is. We think of ourselves as “Americans” collectively, and that is how the rest of the world sees us, but we are very different from state to state and region to region. People that don’t travel don’t get that perspective.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. John: Enjoy your trip home. I had forgotten that you had a much younger sister. It must seem surreal. Kinda like the fact that I have an infant at home and am contemplating organizing my 25th high school class reunion…
