It’s still the same country, right? The premise was simple… Head down South for twelve months to complete an accelerated graduate studies program, and then return back up North and find a more gainful career. In the meantime, save a bunch of money by going to a place where everything including college costs way less, and maybe have a few adventures along the way. How hard can all that be? “Higher Learning in America’s Crotch” is a story about finding purpose and understanding where everyone you know has never thought to look. It embraces the fun of casual observation and people-watching, without trying to pass judgment or denounce different lifestyles. If you’ve never been to the Bible Belt, and you think you know why not, then consider giving this a read and maybe you’ll think again. Or maybe not. Either way, it’s one hell of a trip.
