After 30 hours of traveling and waiting, I finally arrived Richmond, Virginia, USA (or RVA, the hipster way of calling it) last night. I'm going to spend my PhD years here. Now I'm in the same time zone as New York City.
I'm exhausted but my apartment is still almost empty with no bed to sleep on and no pots to cook with. Richmond is an important site in American history. The population looks like half white and half black with very few other races. The climate is warm and nice. RVA may not be as hippie as Madison, WI where I used to live and not as hipster as those big east coast cities. Shopping isn't convenient, but at least the city looks so laid-back.
Here is a picture of me in the medical school campus of VCU.
