    Yet another week has passed in the Pearl River Delta. After receiving a mosquito bite, I thought I was surely going to die of malaria, but that hasn't happened thusfar so I would call this week a success. It's been humid and toasty in the area, but that hasn't stopped me from going outside the hotel and exploring everyday. Just yesterday I went to one of the most famous shopping locations …

    Prior to arriving in Costa Rica, I was a little skeptical about my living arrangements with my host family. I assumed that I would miss out on several amenities, such as warm water for showers and internet. However, my Tico family provides everything I need while I am here. My host family and I reside in Zapote, approximately fifteen minutes from downtown San Jose. Our neighborhood is one the safest in …

    5/25/15 Harry wanted us to be ready by 8:15 a.m. today. There aren’t enough hours in the day to sleep. I think 23 hours should be devoted to beauty rest and 1 hour for errands, school and work lol (you’ll never know how much I love sleeping). Today, we were to meet with the directors from the Spitler Primary School and PTTCSR, which is a training college for the future teachers of …

    5/24 Today, left as quickly as it came. We woke up early. We had a bus to catch to Siem Reap. We were used to riding in style but this Greyhound bus look-a-like had no air conditioning. I couldn’t push my seat back or more over without falling off my seat. There was luggage every where including my own. I was too tired to talk. Luckily, out of the 6 hours …

    5/22 Today was a bit bittersweet. We were to meet downstairs at 8 a.m. We were leaving Vietnam today. I almost felt like a nomad. I didn’t feel like we had a real home anywhere or we fit in anywhere. We just kept getting up and leaving. Three days in Bangkok, 3 days in Hanoi, 3 days in Saigon. It seemed like every few days we just …

    Hong Kong. I already fell in love with this magical city during a business trip a couple of years ago. The beautiful combination of old and new, modern and ancient, water and land, skyscrapers and harbors were unlike anything I've ever seen before. However, I only stayed there for one brief day, certainly not enough to explore the city, so I promised myself I would go back as soon as …

  • "Welcome to Jordan"

    by: John_T

    created on: May 28, 2015 | Amman, Jordan

    “Welcome to Jordan!” is an oddly specific and nearly universal phrase among Jordanians. It’s odd because almost every Jordanian that has so far employed the phrase has done so with the exact same cadence and meter. Like the syllabic meter of 5-7-5 for a haiku, the syllabic meter of “Welcome to Jordan” is a distinct 2-1-2. There is always a clear emphasis on the first syllable of each of the …
