Happy to be Home

Dear Reader, Did you get a break this holiday season? I was lucky enough to get some time away from the office around Christmas and I have a short schedule this week around New Year’s. While the break was nice, I must admit that my brain is having trouble adjusting to work life and my […]

Little Latin America

Dear Reader, How often do you drive by the same places without ever stopping to check them out? Today, I visited a little café on a familiar street corner near Pittsburgh for the first time. The place is called “Cafe Tu y Yo” and it is a family-owned business that sells Latin American coffee, pastries, […]

Around the World in 30 Rooms

Dear Reader, It is Christmas today in the United States, but it is not Christmas everywhere. A few days ago, I visited the Cathedral of Learning in Pittsburgh, PA.

My Little Blue Friend

Dear Reader, It’s a symbolic end of an era for me. My passport is due to expire soon! When I got my passport almost ten years ago, it was for a trip with my high-school group to Spain. As a 17-year old, traveling abroad for 10 days in a chaperoned group without parents was the […]

Beantown

Dear Reader, It is raining sideways again in Boston. Sometimes, on days like this, I have to really force to myself to remember why I love this city. Do you know the meaning of the word ‘ambivalence’? While you may have used this word casually to mean ‘uncertain,’ it actually has a very specific meaning […]

Stop and Smell the Redwoods

Dear Reader, It’s another rainy day in Boston. At least this time the rain is light. Today, I visited the Apple store because I was having a problem with my iPhone. On my pace to their Bolyston location, I walked through the Boston Public Garden. From an aerial view on a map, the Boston Public […]
