The most interesting band formed from our EMI group. They play strictly old country/folk songs, and are comprised of an English woman, two Americans, a Chinese woman, a Scottish Man, and a Northern Irish Woman.
I got to spend some quality time with my EMI mentor from the UK :)
At first the food was alright...this meal tasted a bit like red beans and rice.
