And I'm off...tomorrow
I woke up early this morning, my last full day at home. Preparing to leave has been stressful in that I feel like I'm waiting for some sort of justification/approval. Like: "okay, you're all set! You packed what you need, you have your paperwork, time to go...

“A single bracelet does not jingle”
This Congolese
proverb rings true in many situations but I have related to it strongly in the
past few weeks.   Because I am constantly
moving around, I find myself saying goodbye more often than I might like. Don’t

before I got back. Feria, Paris, Santiago de Compostela, Barcelona, Basque

struggles that come with being plopped ...

When in...Rome
I had been pretty indifferent about going to Rome until I had a

Semana Santa
[Note: now we are actually in feria] ¡Venga, vamos,
me parece que estamos en FERIA! Today is Easter Sunday and so the last day

Friends, Faro and Granada
  My first non-program trip of the semester was to Faro,
Portugal with Caroline the last weekend in February. Monday was a fiesta so we didn’t have class. I was excited to spend a long weekend at the beach.
