Last time I went to a Fulbright even we had a far view on Los Angeles, but with the fog it just looks like the photo above.
Last Saturday we had the end-of-year-Fulbright event at the same house, i.e. all Fulbright students and scholar around Los Angeles are invited to our coordinator's place, we have a barbecue and everybody brings international food. It was absolutely great! I enjoyed Naan bread and Nutella which is a nice international combination and lots of good conversation. While driving down a bunch of people from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles, I listened to a conversation about religion, freedom and life in general between an Israeli Jew and a Pakistani Muslim - I had to concentrate on driving, but I am glad that Fulbright brought those people together! It was super interesting to listen.
