Smitten


My church just started a blog, so I wrote a little something about how I came to be there, and how I decided to stay. Here it is! In the fall of 2007 I studied abroad in Argentina and had my first small-church experience. I was the first to arrive for worship on my first […]

[WGF:10] New Editions to My Beloved Map Collection


My brother got me an awesome Christmas present! Not one, but TWO antique maps. One is of Asia in the 1850s and the other is South America in 1897. There are a few countries on the Asia map that I’ve never heard of before, like Beeloochistan and Turkestan. There are also a few countries missing, […]

It’s Like Running…


Being in Argentina is sort of like running (as are all good things) because once you get going, you sort of get into the zone and could just go forever. When you start on a long run, and it’s rainy and cold outside, you feel stiff and are tempted to stop. But once you get […]

My roommate Kim, and our friend Bridgitte (from Chapman!) went together. It was their second time, […]

Patagonia, Round One


BARILOCHE This is the story of my 8-day adventure in Patagonia. It was AMAZING—last Sunday I left with my 2 friends Meghan (from Buffalo NY) and Rebecca (Washington DC) on a bus that, in a mere 18 hours, took us to Bariloche, a small place I like to call paradise on the Chilean border. Bariloche […]

Tango show!


On Saturday night, our group of 15 went to a tango show near San Telmo (a barrio in BA). It was so fantastic! I don’t really hang out with that group as much of the rest of them do, because I’m in a different class, so it was cool to get to know them a […]
