    This isn’t a fake trip is it? I got tricked by the moon landing, and I won’t be fooled again.

    Seriously–what an interesting start to the trip. I can just imagine the Thomas Friedman column now, “As I was getting off of my French-made Airbus plane, after eating a pan-Asian fusion meal onboard, I was struck by the optimism and obvious abilities of a collection of Williams and St. Anselm students as well as by the familiar aroma of munchkins baking in a Swiss-constructed oven, tended by Somali workers. It was at that point that I knew that the hot, crowded, flat world had a future, as long as these college students embrace green energy . . .”

    Looking forward to additional updates.
