I left behind my cozy little home in La Cañada on August 30 to meet up in Washington, D.C. with dozens of other pumped-up, adventure-seeking American Field Services students headed to all points in Europe.

New flooring, new seating, remodeled locker rooms, and air conditioning for the first time ever will make the gym ?more functional and more comfortable,? Headmaster Peter Bachman predicts.
