University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Massachusetts, USA


It's that time of the year for the annual grand exodus of the college students on the Massachusetts State Turnpike - somewhat analogous to the migration of birds I think. Moms and/or dads and/or friends come from all directions to help empty out the dorm room. I'm glad my son is not a pack rat - some folks had every nook and cranny in their car stuffed full and had even more stuff strapped to the roof top - sorry Mitt, didn't see any dogs up on the roof, though.


This is the view from the dorm.  A beautiful setting to enrich one's mind......

....in a spartan, no frills, 'bed-and-desk-in-room-with-bathroom-down-the-hall' kind of a place.

And when he gets home, he'll have about as much room as he had in the dorm. I'm not complaining  - we are very fortunate to live in a cottage on a pond but, three adult people and a cat in 800 square feet makes for close quarters.
