Today is the last Saturday at the AMP program and our living group had a nice dinner in Boston and as we speak we are watching ‘Good Fellas’ – nice movie.

I am pretty sure we will miss the company of the group, the diversity, the arguments and the competitive spirit.  We have had a great time learning and living together.   We have certainly gotten to know each other better.  We definitely know that the Australian is fake….

We have a local person whose restaurant picks every Saturday night have been outstanding and he has been gracious enough to join us 6 out of the 7 Saturdays.  Guess we are the ‘temporary’ family.  My sincere thanks to his family.  However we have had some problems with his accent.  So we took him to a speech therapist and he was prescribed this..

I dont believe anyone in this AMP class will debate the best athlete of the class. The Spaniard in our living group gets the prize … Running, Soccer, Squash, gym – he is good at it all.  Singing too!  Go Spain!

But I am impressed with their game. They have beat people half their age at squash.

Active bunch of folks in the living group.  The Singaporean – Chinese in the group never ceases to amaze the group with his consumption of cookies.  I guess his has a way about him of running it off. He is super fit! This is his usual haul back from lunch..chinese-almond-cookies

As for me, I have been fortunate to be a part of this group and am sure the friendship will continue.  As for class, I have had the luxury of bringing both the Indian and the American perspective.  All in all good fun has been had by all.
