I found myself wandering around Harvard Square today after snow delays at the airport and lost luggage. I ate a yummy tofu and black mushrooms dish for dinner. I pinched myself wondering how does someone from southern Ohio end up at Harvard?
It is exciting to be in Boston, reminding of the urban life I once knew as a young child living in Chicago. My last 40+ years, however, has been spent living in Ohio, where the major form of transportation is in a car. Folks look a little thinner in Cambridge. I figured its from all the walking, and I hope it works to my advantage.
I began writing to professors to see if I could sit in some of their classes. I wanted to learn about design thinking, and wrote to Srikant Datar, an accounting professor who teaches the class at Harvard Business School. He invited me to a session he is teaching this week to Spanish and Latin American Academics. Wow, I am looking forward to attending. I can hardly believe it!
