Five years after the photo at the kitchen table studying sophomore literature, I was studying Russian and Spanish at the University of Illinois. As I noted in a different blog, the housemother of McKinley Hall didn't know that Brazilians spoke Portuguese so when I said I'd like an international roommate who spoke Spanish, she matched me up with Dora, who was from mainland China via Brazil and a private Catholic school in Indiana where she'd learned English. But it was a most fortunate mistake, because she was delightful and we are still in touch. Today she is a well known Boston artist. I have a scrapbook of her Christmas cards.
