Into the Abyss

Wake up call: This week is Thanksgiving. Next is the last week of classes. The following few days mark the end of the program and mass exodus off the island (and the country). Following that I will be in Morocco for a week, scraping into Boston just in time for Christmas. I guess, long story …

I Left My Heart in Santorini

My new favorite place in Europe: Santorini. If you were to google the iconic photographs of whitewashed Greece, spiraling church tops of yellow and blue, soft hazy sunshine over a eternal ephemeral sea– you would be seeing Santorini.
