Getting MISTI-fied by Bryan

There's a loud boom coming from Lobby 10.

So on my way back from my BE.370 recitation, walking down the Infinite, I heard a loud boom coming from Lobby 10. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that not only was there the booming, there was FREE FOOD.

Cue the long lines of students. MIT students do not pass up free food.

So apparently, every hour today, MISTI which stands for MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives has been giving out free food. While I was passing through, the free food was Italian coffee and sushi.

So all week, MISTI will be celebrating MISTI week.

Right now, there’s a lecture going on titled “Youth Culture, Music, and Cell Phone Branding in China” over in Sloan but I won’t make it there in time.

A later passage down the Infinite yielded free burritos from Anna’s Taqueria and mariachi music.

Other events this week include:
– Catalan and Sanskrit Lessons
– Movie Screenings including Amores Perros and Veer Zaara
– Panels, Photo Contests, and even a Soccer Tournament

I’ll try to update this entry as I can with photos of events that I attend.

Until then, I’m off to enjoy the beauty of free food and bhangra.

    I somehow ended up with frozen pumpkin cheesecake from MISTI Germany.

    I had one of those burritos. I don’t know if I liked it better this time because I got chicken or because it was free. Probably a little of both. smile
