Abeer in Argentina

Studying abroad in Buenos Aires has got to be one of the best things I have ever done. In the 5 weeks that I spent in this wonderful South American country, I have been to so many places (Buenos Aires, Iguazú and Tigre) and I have learned so many things. I would like to take a moment to share it with you. Mate Mate (mah-tay) or yerba mate (sher-ba mah-tay) is a drink sort of like tea that is a staple in Argentina. It is bitter and is...

My family and I went to Amman, Jordan and the West Bank, Palestine. We flew through Egypt Air, so we stopped in Cairo after an 11...

An Archaeological Work Week!

Today marks the last day of my first work week at field school in Peru! I can't believe it's actually been a full work week. And when I say "full," I mean FULL. Bioarchaeologists do not waste any time whatsoever!! I guess I should further explain my situation here, huh?

Sorry, Valjean, you gotta come clean.   I’m Corrine! Long story short, I transferred to Wagner a little over a year ago after deciding that astrophysics was too introverted for me.

Three Flights, Two Bags, One Amazing City

Buona Sera! Good evening from me writing at 7:00 pm over here in Florence. I would be lying if I said the trip was easy. Believe me it was stressful. But now, I'm finally in Italy for the first time ever! I am staying in a three bed room apartment with three other guys. The first guy I met was Jestin. He is incredibly friendly and chill, which is awesome. He came to Florence with his girlfriend, which I love because I think it's...
