Sri Lankan Curry Night

Sunday night – 10:30 PM

We just finished dishes and cleanup from our second Anderson Hall Dinner – Sri Lankan chicken curry, dhal, and a white curry with carrots, snow peas and cashews. Twelve students came, and our conversation provided an example of why American University is such an interesting place to work --- and live. Among them, there were three international students, one from Lithuania one from Canada, and one from South Korea. Other countries with whom students had ties included Hungary, India, Trinidad, China and others I can't remember.

Two weeks ago, on the first Sunday night of the semester, our conversations lasted until after 10:30. But this week, everyone said their good-byes before 10. Classes have begun. There are reading assignments to be completed, notes to be reviewed and papers to be written.
