    My last Week in Spain! I can't believe it's coming to an end. The time has flew by so quickly, but nevertheless I enjoy every minute of it. I've experienced an actual flamenco show. Which was great. So much passions and enthusiasm in the performance. I also had the chance to participate in the dances which was an unbelievable experience. I wish I had more time there is still more …

    Since this is my last week in Costa Rica, I decided to spend time with my Tica Nanny (house mom) and re-create some of her best recipes. I learned how to make Gallo Pinto and Nicaraguan guacamole. These are staple foods for many Tico families. Below, I have written my interpretation of her recipes. You may try them at your own risk. For the gallo pinto, it is best to cook the frijoles rojo …

    In class yesterday we talked about how different countries can report on the same suject but can give two different focuses in the stories. We compared China Daily to the New York Times and I was very interested in the effect word usage can be when reporting on a serious global issue such as air pollution. We also talked in detail about the financial crisis of Greece and discussed what …

    Today I got a chance to visit where Xiamen Daily is printed. On the outside the building appeared to be a warehouse of some kind. The area surrounding the warehouse looked like it was under construction. Most of the streets that I had seen in China were "developing" so this was a sight I had become used to seeing. We entered the warehouse-like building and the strong smell of machines and …

    Buenos Noches, week two in Spain has come to an end. The days are going by so fast.

The food has been great. Each city offers a special type of food. In Toledo I had the opportunity to see swords and …

    As the days came closer to departing to Costa Rica, I found myself becoming more anxious and doubtful about my decision to study abroad. My mind raced with hundreds of different thoughts. For example, "Do you think this a good idea?", "You are about to leave your son for two months, please do not leave him.", and "Are you really sure you want to do …

    If you had to sum up Sri Lanka with a few phrases, that would be the sandy beaches, misty mountains, giant whales, rising waves, stealthy leopards, lovely tea, mammoth elephants, warm smiles and a majestic past! With numerous scenes and sites captured into a single island, a traveller could spend his time riding the waves during dawn and by dusk he could spend time admiring the carpeted mountains. The hospitality …
