We went to Stanford last weekend. This adventure started as a visit to cousins on Mary's side, Heidi and Andrew and their German friend, Lisa who is considering advertising as a career. We went for lunch, chatting and a football game - but it was much more. We saw:
a water polo match
the cooky band
and we even got on the field after the Stanford team manhandled Arizona. (I wouldn't mind seeing Stanford v LSU in the bowls - but I like the idea of LSU going to the Sugar and me still getting to pull for Stanford in the Rose.)
Overall, it was a remarkable experience. The energy of a college campus for the opportunity to observe community, diversity and freshness is unparalleled.
