This weekend, I’m heading to Valencia, Spain, where my partner will be attending a conference and I will be lounging poolside while reading novels and drinking sangria.
I haven’t organized a single thing about this trip – all I have to do is show up – and its made the whole thing feel very surreal. Before we leave, we’re heading to Strawberry Fair, a big deal annual Cambridge festival. There have been goings-on in this town:a big beer festival last week, a “Town and Country Fair” next week, and a giant street party in my neighborhood at the end of June. Festival season has arrived.
