David and I have been going to the American Club frequently. The food there is decent, and I guess it's nice to hear people speaking in English. It also has great wireless, which is a plus. There are many small children who play there, and I wonder what it would be like to be living in this country as an small American child. As much as I would like to think how awesome that would be, I feel like they are missing out on so much in America. I don't know though. David has also taught me how to play darts, which I feel like we will be playing a lot of this year. We are also trying to meet other Americans our age, just to have other people around. We met a girl today who is on a Fogarty grant...she's a med student at Tufts and her roommate is at medical school at Vandy.
One night at the American club there was an extremely intoxicated girl who was unknowingly embarrassing herself. I was amused because this kind of seen is so typical in Western culture (especially college culture), but I almost felt uncomfortable watching her because I knew that was definitely not a social norm in Bangladesh. I feel like I'm sharing this story because it's weird knowing that you have to act a certain way when you go to other countries.
I kind of feel bad not having any more interesting stories to tell. I haven't really had the chance to go explore yet, but hopefully soon. As for my research, I need to get my letter of support from IUB, and then I guess I'll start working after that. Oh, and we finally got wireless in the apartment (yay!!). So I can finally skype!
Speaking of which, if people want to call me or send me letters and stuff, let me know and I'll give you my contact information. And I think that's it for now.
