Hola Readers- This week has been one of reflection and rejuvenation. I’ve done a lot of my usual things – classes, readings, dance – but I’ve also done a lot of thinking and taking some time for myself as well. I think it’s safe to say that it has hit that point in the semester […]

One of the joys of traveling is the ability to enjoy a new cuisine. In America, we pride ourselves on having food from many cultures from around the world, but it is never comparable to the real foreign cuisine. In China, I learned what my Chinese friends had already described to me. There are big […]
