Two reunions – Cambridge NY and Yale

This post has been moved to https://iansmemoirs.com/two-reunions-cambridge-ny-and-yale/

Here’s an appetizer:

My host family were the Roys of Cambridge, on the east side of New York State, maybe 20 miles above the Vermont – Massachusetts State line. They were six: Paul, who managed the local A&P, and Marie, a nurse and his GI bride from Leeds in Yorkshire; and their four children, Pat (whom I rarely saw because she was married and lived near Boston), John Paul (who was older and cool and occasionally visited home from SUNY Plattsburgh), Jean (a junior at Cambridge Central School, and the sweetheart of a person I exchanged with), and Will (her adorable kid brother who would later announce his first intimate act at a young age to practically the entire family!)

They were the perfect hosts, and it was the perfect exchange. My future as a US immigrant was sealed during those first three weeks on American shores.
