    In need of a break from studying for my upcoming first exam, I decided on Friday to venture into the nature preserve/forest that lies adjacent to campus. Granted, I have been dodging invites to group hikes for weeks.  If I’d been asked, I would have firmly stated that I don’t really enjoy the outdoors. However on this particular day, the view from my window was so inviting that I put …

    The past three weeks have been insane, between clinical, midterms, and so much traveling. Two weekends ago we went to Baños City, which is located about 4 hours from Quito. It’s probably called Baños for a reason, because 10/14 people in the group ended up sick by the end of the trip, but thankfully I was spared from the pain. Baños is located right below Volcan Tunguragua, one of the …

    Now we are approaching midsemester, which means midterms, another shot at the math GRE, grad school apps, and unfortunately not much else. Topology has become significantly more interesting now that we've moved beyond metric spaces, which were pretty boring considering most of it was a rehash of stuff I learned in Analysis 1 and 2 at UNO. We've finally begun to discuss geometric topology, looking at real projective space, Euler …

    One of the true beauties of Studying Abroad in staying at a home stay. I truly can’t begin to explain the benefit of being able to be in a Natives house and conversing, laughing and just spending a season of my life in the home of someone who takes the role of your parent even though they really don’t have to. I love my Tica mother, I don’t think its …

    There are fewer events to talk about this week since I included Krakow in my last post, so are a few things I’m so grateful for about being in Prague along with some reflection. A few things I’m grateful for: Learning about Dutch culture by talking to my friend Iris from Amsterdam whom I met in my surrealism in film class. We went to Cross Club (See week 3) and found a …

    Well being here Ive been thinking what is important in life, Ive never really thought about my time but now I only have so little to myself. So I really think to myself what should I do with these 30 minutes or an hour. What do I find important in life and if time is the most important thing that I have shouldn't I use it to do things that …

    Celebrated in Valparaíso recently was the 15th annual Mil Tambores (a million drums)! And they’re not kidding. There was so much percussion you could feel the streets vibrating with ever step. Along with the drum tradition is Cuerpos Pintados, or painted bodies. Essentially, in this long parade with groups from all over the country playing music and dancing are the brave souls who go nude save for the beautiful artwork …

    Those who know me know I love music.  One of the things I was most curious about, was what music I would find during my stay in Sweden.  I found a “Sweden Top 40” station on Spotify and listened to it a few times before leaving the States. Swedish Top 40 sounded surprisingly similar to USA Top 40, adding a good amount of Swedish electronica.  So I was expecting to …

    I  have a lot to recap concerning my Croatian Vacation which I took in April. My experience started when I landed in Dubrovnik Airport from where I took a cab to Mostar (ref. http://hr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mostar) where I was to spend the night. The drive was great although it was getting dark but I arrived in Hotel Mepas where I was to spend the night before proceeding with my excursion the following morning. I …
