I'm back in Cambridge! The US always looks so funny after traveling abroad. It's such a quaint country-- a little run down, sexually uptight, rather chubby. But it's home, and I'm glad to be back.
I really do love Cambridge (greater-Cambridge, Boston included), for a million reasons, and it's going to kill me leaving it. But would you all disown me if my big move this June is to Rio de Janeiro?
Brazil isn't my favorite country; Rio is far from my favorite city. But for its huge diversity, for its place in an incredible travel network, for being simultaneously prospering and in desperate need, for speaking the second-most-beautiful language in the world, I think it might be just right.
