The College of The Holy Cross, Woster, Massachusetts
Last fall I was invited to go to Woster, Mass to speak at a conference at the College of the Holy Cross. It was a rare for me, one night trip, flying up the day before, spending the night, speaking, heading back to the airport in Boston and flying back that evening. I try to avoid single night trips, I find them wearing. I seldom sleep as well the first night in a hotel as I do the second night. Even when we are "touring" on vacation, I try to stick to the two night rule - a minimum of two nights in any place that I stop.
It was a great conference, very accomodating, good audience, nice meeting facilities. I was glad I was able to do it.
The Conference organizers arranged a local shuttle service to pick me up and drop me off at the airport in Boston. The ride back to the airport, was interesting. The other passengers in the van were a couple flying to London, who argued in the back seat of the van for most of the trip to the airport, and a driver who talked almost non-stop about his family. A very strange trip. I hope the couple in the back seat didn't keep arguing all the way across the Atlantic.
