Wish I had brought the talcum powder...

Watching the World Cup in an air-conditioned pizza place, it's easy to forget stumbling in here an hour ago, red and sweaty and parched, and to glance at the people walking by and wonder where are their coats. The nice man behind the counter politely said I must not be from around here. Picked out as a foreigner, and I haven't even left my own country yet! I said no, I am from Deadhorse, Alaska.
The PIH interview is in two hours, and thankfully I have finally located the building. It took a great deal of wandering around sketchy parts of town before I realized I had the wrong subway stop. Oops, GoogleMaps failure #1. But now here we are, cooling off, watching the World Cup, and hoping that there will be a chance to catch the end of the Spain game. July 2nd the Netherlands plays Brazil, so that should be an entertaining game to watch in Amsterdam.
Once I can take off my interview clothes, perhaps some afternoon explorations of Boston will occur. Early train to New York tomorrow to catch the flight to Europe.
Oh my gawd, I miss you awhl so much from Bawston!
