One of the fun things about being a scientist, especially in Boston, is that it's a very international discipline. Benefits include delicious ethnic food at the annual pot-luck, and for me, a chance to practice my Spanish a bit (although I don't take advantage of it nearly as much as I should). A couple of years ago, one of the American girls organized a little club of native and non-native Spanish speakers, which we named Spanish Table. We get together every couple of months, but in truth, the outings tend to center around food, libation, and departmental gossip rather than language practice. Last night, we went over Marly's apartment for tapas and wine. Mmmmm.
