    created on: Sep 30, 2014 | Chile

    This week marked the beginning of my Giving Back project here in Chile. It started on Monday morning at 8.30 AM. I should mention that my early- rising, have-the-whole-day-ahead-of-me self has transformed a bit here, i.e. the Chilean lifestyle (the day starting at 11) has affected me more than I’d like to admit. So anyway this was a bit of a challenge. My eyes were heavy on the metro ride …

    So far I have managed to scrape up $25. I have just started about a month ago but my family seems reluctant to help and the two sponsors I have sought out help from so far have refused any contact with me since the meeting. I have set up a YouCaring account, but people haven't donated, and I'm starting to get a little worried. My account page is youcaring.com/ISVHelp if …

    Last weekend I had the pleasure of spending time in the community of San Clemente, a small town in Imbabura that houses an indigenous community of 175 families. This specific community is part of the Caranquis, one of the most resilient groups in Ecuador, whom have fought long and hard to maintain and gain rights. Ecuador still has a very large population of indigenous people. It would have been impossible for …

    Coming back from Palpa made this week in Kathmandu rougher than usual. Spending time in the beautiful greenery of the Middle Hills was a huge contrast to returning back to the business of the capital city. School seemed to drag on this week, to make things more stressful, we had a lot of assignments due - even while completely across the world, schoolwork is still schoolwork.  On Thursday began Dashain, one …

    So as you all know, we went to St. Petersburg this past weekend. What a whirlwind of experiences! We left around 1am Thursday night/Friday morning and it was my first time riding on a passenger train. Pretty nice, slept for the whole ride and woke when we were about a half hour outside of St. Petersburg. We were met by our tour guide then proceeded to breakfast. New food obsession: …

    Island hopping has always been a big dream for my girlfriend, Jean and I given the fact that we are both outgoing and fun-loving. The year had been quite long with so much to accomplish especially since I had landed a new job which came with more demands and so when the summer was approaching, it was a genius idea to plan a trip. We hit the internet searching for …

    There. Is. So. Much. Going. On. It’s driving me AWESOME. As usual: here’s a summary of my week, some reflections, and excitements for the future.

    Wow. I’ve barely been abroad for a week and my mind has been blown so many times I’ve lost count. I’d like to go over the literal “what I did” this past week before going into the lessons and reactions I’ve gleaned from these experiences (at least what I’ve been able to process so far). WHAT I DID: Two days in London: -Saw many of the main sites like Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Hyde Park, …
