We got up very early and David took us to DFW. Our flight was eventless, the way flights should be. Gary slept, but I never can, so I'm pretty tired now after only 4 hours of sleep last night. We got a taxi from the airport to Andrew's apartment. His apartment is kind of the pits, but for over $1000/month, what do you expect? He also hasn't tried very hard with food preparation, so there is no food in his kitchen. But the nearest grocery store is almost 2 miles away, and no one has a car.

The awards ceremony was long, but cool. Andrew got a nice award that says: The Raymond Vernon Award 2004 to Andrew Simons for Outstanding Commitment to International Development.

Then we watched about half of the MPAID students jump off the foot bridge into the Charles River. He said the water was pretty nasty. Then he came and took a shower, put some laundry in (laundry room is on the 21st floor), then we walked a mile to a Chinese restaurant. We hadn't eaten all day, but I didn't feel very hungry. After that we wandered through Harvard Yard, took a few photos, and then wandered home. We all have to sleep in one small room because Eric's family is here from China, and they have the living room. Gary has already fallen asleep with a glass of water in his hand. I better figure out how to blow up the airbed.
