Bay Area Report (1)

Something nice about Bay area is that you end up seeing very passionate people here. I guess even the Nihilists of the area are quite enthusiastic about their life and believes. Homeless people are certainly like that here. I met this person from the La Rouche youth movement tonight who was extremely passionate about the whole movement that you'd think tomorrow there is going to be a revolution in this country.

Living in the International House of Berkeley is quite an experience. You end up socializing at least three times a day over the meals with random people with random nationality backgrounds. The fact that many people are new to the country or the area makes them more talkative and approachable. For someone like me who is quite self critical and socially phobic, this is quite a nice environment that the price of trial and error is not very high.
