We had our first snow this weekend. It didn’t stay on the ground of course and though yesterday was quite cold and not very pleasant, today is beautiful and a lot warmer. That is what the weather is like in DC. Though there has been some socializing for me, I have of course mainly studied this weekend as I have an assignment that is due in about a week. I was invited to a Halloween party but I decided not to go. Even though it is an American tradition and I know that as an immigrant here I should really try to get into the local culture, costume parties have never really been my thing. I did decorate my apartment with pumpkins and black crows though, and bought peanut butter chocolates, so I am at least following some of the the local customes.
If you look carefully, you can see the snowflakes outside my window….
No real tradition without a fitting book to go with it. For Halloween, it is “Poems Bewitched and Haunted”. The mini-pumpkins are from the Farmers’ Market at Dupont Circle today.
And back to my food policy studies….
