    Hello All! Last week I finished my internship in China and it was utterly bittersweet. I loved all the friends I stumbled upon and will miss everyone so much. However, I am glad to now be on a new adventure and reunited with people that speak American English! This week I met up with all of my Chinese classmates from college to start a month long study abroad program in the city …

    In just a few short hours, I will be heading off to Manchester airport to start the circa 24 hour journey to Cape Town, South Africa. I still can't quite visualise the fact that I will not be back in Liverpool, let alone the northern hemisphere for a whole 2 months. It is tremendously exciting to think that by the time I get back, I will have so many photographs, …

    I just completed my mid-term exams and am eager to see the results.  It's quite hot here however it would be similarly hot for me if I were currently residing in Madison, Wisconsin interestingly enough.  The cuisine and social norms here are quite different but interesting.

    Since my last journal entry I've completed my volunteering orientation programme (very impressive title) with Markus from Interweave, which was very enlightening and wide ranging and included practical training plus a tour of some of the local must-see sights. For example, I've now seen Angkor Wat at sunrise (not so spectacular when it's cloudy and the sun wrongfoots all the tourists by sneaking up behind the clouds) but nonetheless the …

    ''An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere.'' These words seem to be above reproach. There certainly isn´t a valid arguement that can be given to take away the validity of this statement. It´s simply true. But what happens when your cause to fight the injustices of the world becomes itself an injustice? This is the case in Santiago, Chile, as men, women, and children of all ages and backgrounds have …

    Tonight was the first night I spent in Xiamen. I was extremely tired from all my traveling earlier so the prison like bed didn't seem as hard. Again I woke up at 5:00am naturally and opened the curtains to my room. The view again is simply breath taking but the bathroom was the opposite. I took my shower quickly and prepared for my day. Downstairs two Xiamen University journalism students were …

    I am so excited! I have conquered my first two days (Wednesday and Thursday) of service-learning at Fundacion Anna Ross. This foundation offers health promotion, therapy, and support groups to women suffering with or has survived breast cancer. On Wednesday, my colleagues and I created invitations and hand-delivered them to various patients at San Juan Dios Hospital. It was wonderful to see the ladies smile from our little message of hope.  I …

    Last night after dinner we made a trip to a new hotel near the airport where we met with our professor Dr. Zhou of Albany State University. The rooms were very nice and the bests were softer at this Best Western which was a very nice change from the previous bed. Dr. Zhou informed us we needed to get our rest because we would need to be in the lobby …

     Today I visited the historic The Tiananmen Square in the center of Beijing, which is said to be the biggest square in the world. We learned the square is 880 meters from north to south, and 500 meters from east to west, with total area of 440,000 square meters and can hold one million people. I witnessed The Tiananmen Gate Tower sites. I saw the Five-Star Red Flag flying high on the square, …
