A rather interesting aspect of Cambridge (or is it just King’s?) is the existence of “college families”. Each new student gets assigned college parents and a sibling. Though I have not yet met my parents or my sister, I look forward to this arrangement.
Well, not everyone gets a sibling I guess. That’s why I “adopted” a brother who had ended up an “only child” and gave me a valuable language lesson, including a suggestion not refer to British blacks as African-Americans. Got it. T- 2 days.
