One definite perk of living in Williamsburg is that most everyone that you meet seems to be a big fan of the city itself. I mean, it’s tough not to be with places like Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, and the outlets nearby. When you are a student though, you’ll always be getting calls from friends or friends of the family interested in visiting the city. Usually, this also means that you can often get a free lunch or dinner in one of the many restaurants in the city.
My parents were in town yesterday, and it was really great spending time with them…and going out to eat with them (twice). For lunch we ate at the Green Leafe, and my mom insisted on staying later so that we could eat dinner at Bonefish, which is her favorite. As I’ve mentioned along the way, I’m still figuring out the whole cooking thing so it was nice not having to think about two meals.
I also had a friend visiting who just graduated from William & Mary this year. She’s trying to get some visits in before she moves to Austria in September as part of the Fulbright Program, which is really impressive and awesome. She’ll be there teaching English and is beyond excited. William & Mary is definitely proud of the fact that it has one of the highest admit rates into the Fulbright Program. I’m going to miss her and many of the other recent graduates next year!
