A Micronesian in Boston

A few days ago I drove six hours northeast to Boston and spent a couple of days with Delight Suda, the husband of our Chuukese daughter, Evelyn. Evelyn, as you will remember, is a student at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, and will be graduating this summer with her Master's degree in Professional Counseling. But that's another story. Her husband of two years, Delight, also from her home island of Puluwat, is in training to be the PIBC Financial Aid Director. He flew to Boston a few days ago to attend a U.S. Department of Educaton Financial Aid training so he can be better prepared to do this job. He has never been to the States before, so I thought I'd spend some time with him showing him how to get around. We had a great time of fellowship together, riding the subway.....doing some sightseeing in a cold drizzling winter rain....

OK, so maybe we didn't enjoy the cold drizzling rain so much. It was not only Delight's first time to the States, but also my first time to Boston. We were both impressed with how nice Boston was in spite of the weather.
