My first week in Belize

Belize is a beautiful country just south of Mexico. I have yet to meet a stranger here. The locals learn English in school, so English speakers will not have a problem communicating or getting around. Languages also spoken here include Spanish, Kriol (a unique mixture of mostly Spanish and English), and many Mayan languages used in the smaller villages. This first week in Belize (out of two) is being spent working with TIDE, the...

El Primer Día

While I’ll be gone for a month, I know my time in Spain is going to fly by. Quite honestly I think I’ll be having such an incredible time here in Spain it will be entirely too difficult to get homesick, although you would have found me frantically calling all my friends at the airport to try and catch up with everyone before I left. As excited as I am for new friendships, amistades nuevas if you will, I think I may be most excited to...
