Busy times

Hi there! Hope you are having a great summer!

Things are very busy here, though no surprises there. I was in London for a week of training at my summer employer, and found a huge amount of stuff waiting for me on coming back. Assignments, dinner invitations, parties and so on. In addition, we had the National Week bidding. As you would be aware of, INSEAD has a tradition to celebrate the diversity by Organizing National weeks. People from various nations nominate their national teams by amphi-storming to all the student body, and students decide which one to choose for the final National week. This past Tuesday, following countries bid for a National week in P4/P5:

Can-Am (Canada and America)
Aus-NZ (Aussie and NZ)
Heart of Europe (Germany, Swiss and Austria)
Desi (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka) and
Ze French Ouik

As you would notice, only at INSEAD, Canada meets US, Australians fall in love with NZ, and India and Pakistan organize parties together... no place could be better than this, and I wish politicians had learnt something from here ;)

Last night was Caberet night where (mostly) P5 and P3 students showed their talents in the Music and Dramatics arena. It was an amazing and humbling experience. Some of the activities were:

Live Skits
Songs (English, French)
Videos (made by INSEAD students)
Fashion Show (All the wardrobe collection of a popular girl here; and about 30 students including some guys used her wardrobe. Allegdely, they couldn't yet display it all!)
Jugglery (including a with fire)

And a lot of fun activities which can't be put in any category. They also included few people of one particular extra curricular club getting naked as per an old INSEAD tradition. Please don't ask anything more, as I am not sure if this is meant to be a secret or if i can reveal the club name etc.



so who won the national week bid ?
