Glass Building 209, En algún lugar de las Américas

Ha sido un fin de semana muy interesante. Aparte de toser la mayor parte del tiempo e ir con bufanda a todas partes (la calefacción en la residencia está como a 35º C, no hay calefacción ninguna en el edificio de clases y la temperatura exterior está en torno a los 4º, supongo que todo eso junto no ayuda), he ido a los partidos de baloncesto que abren la temporada del college (las chicas perdieron, los chicos ganaron) y al Phonathon.

¿Qué es un Phonathon? Pues evidentemente un maratón telefónico para recaudar fondos. Como no tenemos un duro, nos unimos a un espectáculo organizado por el Fondo de Colleges Negros Unidos y llamamos a la gente del pueblo a ver si nos dan algo. Lo que no inventen los americanos…

Nowadays (85)

Glass Building 209, Somewhere in the Americas

It’s been a very interesting weekend. Apart from coughing most of the time and go with my scarf everywhere (heating at the dorm is about 35º C, there’s no heating at all at the classroom building and the external temperature is around 4º, I guess all that doesn’t help), I went to the basketball games opening the season at the college (girls lost, boys won) and the Phonathon.

What’s a Phonathon? Obviously a telephone marathon to rise funds. Since we don’t have a penny, we join the show organized by the United Negro College Fund and we call people from the town to see if they give us something. Anything that is not invented by Americans…
