    • Side Street

    • New York Center for Art & Media Studies (NYCAMS)
    • My friend Chelsea and I were on our way to Greenwich Village in Manhattan, where there is a plethora of expensive shops and designer stores where celebrities deck themselves out in the spendiest trends. Only one street down from the shops, I walked...
    • Guatemalan Buses

    • Guatemala Term
    • It is impossible to visit Guatemala without noticing the buses. Every bus is pained a multitude of different colors, has a headline in the front window, is filled well beyond capacity, and has a man who stands on the steps shouting out the bus’s...
    • Leslie Jordan & Friends

    • New York Center for Art & Media Studies (NYCAMS)
    • The Easter Parade of New York City isn’t your typical parade. There are no elaborate floats, or sweaty marching bands, or progression of police cars and fire trucks. Rather, the parade is people; voluntary participants and fascinated on-lookers...
    • Marionettes

    • History of Science in Europe
    • Hand crafted wooden marionettes adorn the streets of Florence over the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Reminding me so much of the story of Pinocchio I later found that Florence was indeed the birth place of Pinocchio’s author Carlo Collodi. The story of...
    • Monkey Business

    • Globalization in India
    • Traveling in a large coach bus with "Tourist" stamped on the front, we became the target of beggars, street entertainers, and these monkey handlers. When our bus stopped for traffic, they flew into action. The monkeys were snatched up and placed on...
    • Drikung Monastary

    • School for International Training (SIT)
    • Drikung Monastery is well known by Tibetans from all across Tibet. This holy location is where many take those who have passed on to receive a proper and respectful death rite. The ceremony begins the night before, with the monks encircling the...
    • Across Cultures

    • History of Science in Europe
    • In my brief time spent overseas observing and discovering new places with new cultures, customs, and ways of life became part of the experience. However, it struck me that as significant as the origins and lineage of modern science are, so, too,...
    • Guidelines and Limitations

    • History of Science in Europe
    • This photo was taken on the way to the entrance of St. Peter’s Basilica. It is supposed to be the dress code for admittance into the Basilica, but apparently you can’t enter if you are missing a leg or a large chunk of your arm…
    • The Offering

    • Religious Traditions in Asia: Thailand
    • In Thailand, Buddhism and culture are one in the same. Buddhist symbols, temples, monks, and images are overwhelmingly present in everyday life. Images of the Buddha were originally created as an object of worship and in order to spread the...
    • In the Midst

    • Experiencing Culture and Education in Hong Kong and Manila
    • This photo was taken after a two-hour trip up to the “Big Buddah” on Lantau Island. It is the largest bronze sitting Buddah in the world, only it was so foggy that day, that we could only see the outline of his raised hand! The statues around...
    • Hungry, anyone?

    • Experiencing Culture and Education in Hong Kong and Manila
    • The densely crowded streets of Hong Kong were full of flavorful excitement for my tame Minnesota senses. Imagine: Chinese pop music pulsing from trendy stores; neon signs flashing as hoards of teens in bright army boots alongside sophisticated...
    • Housing

    • Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU)
    • In the midst of gleaming new banks and twenty-one story hotels in modern Kunming lies one of the last traditional villages to remain untouched by modernization. Within walking distance from the most expensive and fashionable shops in southern...
    • Street Art

    • Europe Term Intercultural Communication in Austria, Czech Republic, and France
    • This photo was taken when I was in Florence, Italy. This city is an active center of art and culture, attracting thousands of people from all over the world each year. Art can be found around every corner of this city, from Michelangelo’s David to...
    • One Way

    • Reconciliation and Role of the Church
    • Three colors on the signs and curbs represent more than just street art. Rather, the colors symbolize the underlying divides and apparent remaining hostility between the Protestant Unionist and Catholic Nationalist communities of Northern Ireland....
    • Cottage Garden

    • England Term
    • The Lakes District is widely accepted as the most beautiful spot in England. It has dazzling hills covered in moss and streams, low stonewalls encircling sheep pastures, and slate cottages with boot flower pots suspended from their walls. This...
    • Untitled

    • Guatemala Term
    • There is no clearer manifestation of wealth than in the graves of the dead. In a visit to the cemetery of Guatemala City, the capital of the country, we saw the distinctions of wealth clearly. These are the public graves, which are rented out for...
    • Lots of Love

    • Europe Term Intercultural Communication
    • “Lovers” travel around Europe leaving their locks on bridges or near bridges, and throw their keys into the water. They are “locked” together forever.
    • Quintessential England

    • England Term
    • Sheep are a ubiquitous characteristic of the United Kingdom’s countryside and have been for centuries. I find their helplessness and simplicity endearing and, though today, their importance in British economy and culture is lessened, I could not...
    • Little Yellow Car

    • American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS)
    • While wandering the streets of Rome I stumbled upon this little yellow car parked in an alleyway. I thought the car was a good representation of typical Italian transportation.
    • Hidden Talents

    • Guatemala Term
    • Within the dusty, mountainous streets of Magdalena lies an abundance of talent. Everyday, about twenty students fill up one room, which makes up the art school. Laughter fills the small room as they practice and perfect the techniques they have...
