One of the highlights of having to come back early from the Ge 1 field tripwas getting to see what Blacker did for Interhovse. I’d never seen How to Train Your Dragon, so after we took a tour of Blacker’s interpretation, my roomie, Gauri (you’ll meet her furreal later), made me go watch it. (:
Only afterwards did we both realize just how thorough Blacker was. It’s clear they had a lot of fun with their theme. Without further ado, some pictures:
That huge monster thing of which even the dragons are scared.
Even the snacks were so meticulously crafted!
Caltech is secretly actually an art school. (;

When the announcement was first made that fall term was going to be online, I started talking to friends and looking for places to live. We were debating locations around the country: California, Florida, New York, etc.. there were plenty of options. Then it suddenly hit me, what is stopping us from going to Hawaii, covid numbers were better and a two week quarentine would ensure that numbers stayed down… I proposed this to my friend and we agreed it would be an amazing experience, but we didn’t want to get out hopes up. A month or so later we still haven’t decided where to live, Hawaii seemed too far and too difficult to plan. But we couldn’t get the idea out of our heads. We spent some time looking into plane tickets, places to stay, etc… and it actually didn’t seem so impossible after all. A couple weeks later and we were arriving here on the big island!
I visited Amsterdam for a brief two and a half days during my vacation. There were a few landmarks and neighborhoods I wanted to checkout, but did not plan the visit in detail. As such, when it came down to destinations with ticketed entries, I had to skip most of them, since they did not have day-of tickets left for sale. Fortunately, I was able to walk around most of the city and it was generally a good time.
