my younger brother, john, finally graduated from appalachain state and i flew down from new york to join in the fun family festivities. it was a wonderful weekend. it's amazing how different north carolina is - especially the mountains - from new york city. quite refreshing. and it was a beautiful day.
graduation looks itchy...
family hug (minus the official photographer, of course) with the new graduate! we're so proud.
after commencement excercises were over, the four of us grabbed a bite to eat at a tex mex joint near campus.
and, true to form, there were some beautiful views on the plane ride home. i believe these are all new york city oil tanks. that just gives the beauty an interesting twist, right?
