Enduring the thunderstorms around Dulles Airport yesterday, the pilots safely delivered our first 5 Austrian interns to the U.S. Passport control boasted longer lines than usual but baggage was quick and we arrived at the Woodlawn Creekside Cottages right at midnight. Tuck advised Maggie to have a diet pepsi en route home; it was a real sacrifice but it did the trick, along with rain abatement.
From left to right, Jojo, Hanni, Lisa, Eva and Julia are eating breakfast in the gathering room. We’re scheduling the day around a discussion of their activities in the month ahead, tours of Woodlawn and Jubilee, and their jet lag.
Also caught in the new postings is the moment all 5 finally got WiFi to work. Hanni was the computer genius on this one.
Jack is elated that he has five more friends for the summer. The beagle and we, too, can’t wait to get started. Thank you to the parents who have said YES! to let their very talented daughters join us for the summer internship!
