I say good-bye to my current class: They are almost ready to be turned loose on the TC community. Back row, left to right: Dirk and Bruce. Middle row: Farnaz and Jonah. Front row: Gayla, Luba, and Vika. (Missing: Jenny.) I am expecting great things in their final projects.
Driver of the week: Stuck in slow-moving traffic on the coastal highway (route 2), I see a beat-up old car with velour curtains (tres chic a la Arab village). The driver is smoking a hookah and drinking a glass of beer. No lie. I try to take a picture but traffic starts moving again. Luckily, I have a witness, as I am hitching a ride back with student Dirk.
