However, the most exciting thing that happened this week is that my parents came to visit.  They flew into Barcelona on Thursday morning.  I took an overnight train […]

I started my weekend well. I was at one of the social centers we work with and learning embroidering, which I was pretty horrible at. One of the girls in the center whose name is Oumou taught me… I was doing it right apparently, but not really since I made it too tight.     […]

Up until now, I had never had the opportunity to leave the United States. My parents always found more value in getting to know the area, state, country that you live in before you expand your scope and travel the world, and rightfully so. Not to mention, the cost of flying a family of five […]

This past weekend, I had the amazing opportunity to visit Morocco.  The trip began as I rushed to the train station after finishing a Dynamics exam.  I was a little worried about time, but I ended up finishing the exam a little early and everything was fine.  We took a 5.5 hour train to Algeciras, […]
