    • Sunrise on Charles Bridge

    • Europe Term Intercultural Communication
    • Charles Bridge, started in 1357, is always teeming with crowds. On the last morning of our stay in Prague, I ventured onto the bridge to experience it with less people around. I was totally surprised by the sight. In the misty fog of this ancient...
    • Drikung Monastary

    • School for International Training (SIT)

    • 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...
    • 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,...
    • 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...

    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • Bubbles/Burbujas

    • Spain Term
    • This photo was taken in Parque Güell, in Barcelona, Spain. This park was designed by Antoni Gaudí, the famed architect of the Sagrada Familia and other famed buildings in Spain. It is a very popular tourist attraction and as such also attracts...
    • Millenium Bridge

    • History of Science in Europe
    • This photo was taken on the north side of the Millennium Walking Bridge, which crosses the River Thames in London. Locals have nicknamed this bridge the "Wobbly Bridge" due to a past history of swaying when many people have been crossing it. This...
    • 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…
    • Street Art

    • 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....
    • An Antique Extravaganza Canonized

    • England Term
    • Towards the tail end of our first week in the UK, we visited the well-kept ruins of Linlithgow Palace, 15 miles west of Edinburgh, Scotland. Awestruck by its architectural grandeur as well as its lavish history, we filled up our cameras like good...
