And now she's your problem.
We are leaving her here with you, we'll pin a note to her thrift store dress. Educate her, prepare her for life. This one has a heart of gold, excellent taste in art, music and design, a creative soul and the ambition of a CEO. She has a bright future, and she will glow all the more for the time she'll spent here with you.
So far, Ally seems to be really enjoying herself. She loving the southern, city vibe. We've had some solid meals - I'm still digesting the Breakfast burrito I ate at Snooze a.m yesterday afternoon.
Yesterday, we toured the Rice Campus. By chance, we met the head of the O-Week welcoming committee and even Kyle, the Executive Chef who ensured that Ally and other vegetarians have their own food stream, and vegan and vegetarian options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We had burgers and ice cream last night, and this morning Tracey and I did a four mile run on the winding trails in Memorial Park. Absolutely sweating my ass off. Felt good.
Today, we're meeting Ally's roommates family for brunch at Pondicheri - another fusion restaurant. Everything is a fusion here because the city is a fusion. The north talks a good game, but when it comes to actually mixing cultures, the south does it better.
