The Trip

The week has been fairly positive. I’ve been generally on top of things, although had a very sudden mood dip this evening, which was a shame because we went to see the perfectly good Forever Plaid at the St James Theatre. 311 more words

Raquel's Ark

Close to our Cabañita in Volcan, we stumbled across Raquel’s Ark, a small animal rescue center.

The Trip

The Countdown.

Less than one month now until the first trip departs for 2016.  Everyone should begin making final arrangements/logistics for each trip departure:  make sure you have transportation to campus on the departure days, have a flexible pick-up upon return (which may vary by a day or two depending upon the weather pattern), and have your gear lined-up according to the attached packing list.  41 more words

Asheville, NC was a surprisingly enjoyable little city. I went in knowing nothing about it other than that most of the food is locally sourced which means Kristie would love it. 649 more words
