Overseas, Underfunded: Transportation

posted in James Onorevole

tagged with , ,

Transportation is the backbone of any society. Cars bring people to work, buses haul kids to school, trucks spread goods across the country, trains pull miles of containers from coast to coast. America’s institutions would not exist if we did have fast, reliable means of transportation. However, for six decades America has neglected to sit […]

A lot has happened this week.  My parents came to Madrid after our weekend in Barcelona.  I got to show them my school and they got to enjoy the city while I was in class.  On Monday night, my parents and I went out to dinner with my host Mother Marli.  Marli is wonderful and […]

Going off to college is a big step in young adulthood. There’s a lot of freedom, but that freedom also comes with even greater responsibilities. As I started off my college career, I felt like even though I was doing everything that a young adult should be doing, there was one big thing missing: a […]

Gotta Fight for your Right to Party: Spring Break 2015

tagged with ,

On your left, you will see the Spring Breakers in their natural habitat. Observe, as they engage in the imbibing of spirits. Watch, as they frolic together in various states of undress. Look on in awe as they engage in the “mosh pit.” Note the tropical locale these individuals have placed themselves in. These are […]

In case you were wondering, our picnic on Saturday was a success.  We hung out in the park, ate lunch, and played Frisbee for about three hours. 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 […]

A few days ago, I decided, I need a haircut. This seemed like an easy enough proposition, and yet I was shaking in my boots. Well, I’m actually wearing hiking shoes which, by the way, are great for these uneven cobblestone streets. Although many Germans, particularly young adults, speak fluent English, local businesses like barbershops […]

Last weekend, Lafayette took us to Toulouse, France. The bus ride was ten hours long, but we broke it up by stopping in San Sebastian – a small coastal town in the north of Spain. It was very pretty. Once we got to Toulouse, we were set off on our own to have dinner and […]

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.     […]

Here Comes the Sun: Winter is Going

posted in Robert Sanchez

tagged with , ,

So let me get this out of the way: I hate the Winter. Having been born and raised in Central Jersey, I am certainly accustomed to snowy and frigid Winters. I’ve walked through many a slushy street and tripped over an infinite number of patches of black ice. Sure, the first snowfall is charming, Christmas is […]

tagged with , , ,

On Sunday, we left early for the Rif Mountains.  When we had driven as far as the van could take us, we got out and then walked the rest of the way up a mountain to have lunch and a conversation with the family that lived there. The family was wonderful and our meal of […]
