Columbia is nice; I haven't had time to explore much. There's a confluence of 3 Rivers here in town and lots of green space. I have my Kayak and Bike with me. I'm hoping to go hiking in NC next month when the leaves are changing. I visited 2 different churches last Sunday and might go to a small group meeting this Thursday (What am I thinking? State and Auburn are on ESPN Thursday night??).
I'm renting a trailer about a 1/4 mile from the language school. I'm within 5 miles of any restaurant or store I could want (except an REI Store or Jeep Store). I know a few people here in town but haven't been able to catch up with them yet.
So that's about it for now.
