Week 25: Cue the Waterworks

Not tears. Not rain. Sweat. And lots of it. Despite DC’s late spring and my week in Canada, the heat and humidity have come home to roost (and roast). Plus, I didn’t help things by going to Raleigh, North Carolina, for a few days.

That’s right, after spending the previous Wednesday-Monday in/en route to New York for camp, I had a work trip to Raleigh from Wednesday-Friday. Tiring? Yes. Worth it? Very much so. The purpose of the trip was to learn how North Carolina State University applies human-centered design to their projects, including this library. There’s even a robot that fetches books!

Raleigh has a lot to offer: compact downtown, friendly residents, booming local beer scene, zero traffic, antebellum (possibly haunted) mansions, and a diverse array of events–my hotel was the hub for not only the Future Farmers of America convention, but also the Miss North Carolina pageant. However, Raleigh also offered a gift I very much wanted to refuse: humidity. Oh, the humidity! I didn’t need a map while running; I could just follow the trail of my sweat on the sidewalk.

But soon, this will all be a thing of the past. Because it’s almost time for…SWITZERLAND!

That is, if Moose lets go of my foot.
