The students are back in class this morning. The syllabus shows a lot to cover in a brief time: cross-national cooperation and agreements, global foreign-exchange markets, and the determination of exchange rates. They are also supposed to be ready to compare and contrast the views of The Business Roundtable and the AFL-CIO. It must be a challenge to complete all of this reading and these assignments while also traveling for the site visits and cultural experiences. These students certainly will have earned their three credit hours.
Most of the students are staying a little closer to home base this weekend, planning to see Stonehenge, Bath, and more of Oxford. We do have one student travelling to Holland, one attending the British Open at Turnberry, and one going kayaking in Scotland. I can't wait to hear about that.
Some of us who are still here plan to meet for dinner later this evening.
