    • 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,...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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…
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • 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....
    • Origins

    • Scholars Semester in Oxford (SSO)
    • York Minster, one of the U.K.'s more significant Anglican cathedrals, is mirrored in the windows of an inn across the street - the inn where 17th-century religious extremist Guy Fawkes was supposedly born. Fawkes participated in a failed plot to...
    • 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...
