    • A Wednesday in San Lorenzo Market

    • Academic Programs International (API)
    • The San Lorenzo Market is in Florence Italy. Walking through the market is a daily cultural experience as the Italian merchants call for you to buy their t-shirts, silk scarves and leather goods.  It is impossible to resist the urge to stop and...
    • 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,...
    • Bartering For Meat

    • The History of Science in Europe
    • On the streets of Florence is the Open Air Market. This is the place to buy local meats, bread, fruit, vegetables, spices and so much more. This served as a great place not only to buy lunch, but to practice our bartering as well. This picture...
    • Break

    • Greece and Turkey Study Tour
    • I was walking through Rome late one morning, growing tired from the morning’s journeys, when I saw this man sitting alone along the sidewalk. He looked as if he needed a break—physically, mentally, and emotionally. I paused for a moment from the...
    • Feed the Birds

    • Spain Term
    • San Marco’s Square is infested with pigeons. Everywhere you step, you run the risk of being squawked at. And the, instead of shooing them away, you pay € 1 for birdfeed and invite them to climb all over you! Betsy (pictured) and I could have fed...
    • First to Come, Last to Leave

    • History of Science in Europe
    • Black and blue scarves flaunted proudly, pouring rain in an open air stadium, and absolutely no correlation between the seat number on your ticket and the chair you stand on: this is professional Italian soccer. After talking to the locals about...
    • Fishermen Houses

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • I traveled to Italy after my program in Egypt ended. Every year tourists flock out of Venice to the tiny Islands of Burano to buy fine lace and wander the streets of Kodacolor dreams. Tradition has it that fishermen started painting their houses...
    • From 10€

    • Europe Term Intercultural Communication
    • In the Piazza Novana, beside the fountain of four rivers lies a painters market and within the walls of the buildings surrounding, the artists pass time, as tourists make their way between the grid of stands. Here a young girl waited patiently...
    • 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…
    • Illumination

    • Greece and Turkey Study Tour
    • Late one afternoon our group visited St. Peter in Chains Basilica in Rome. I had spent a lot of time looking at the beautiful sculptures and frescoes in the church. I set my backpack down and knelt beside it to rest my sore shoulders and find a...
    • Italian Experience

    • Paint and Pedal
    • I wanted to remember this small coastal town with its brightly colored houses clustered on a steep slope. This was the essence of my Italian experience.
    • Just another Day

    •  
    • When in Venice in October, the city was experiencing extreme high waters. In Piazza San Marco where we were expecting to see thousands of pigeons, we were instead greeted with water six inches deep. When events like this happen in Venice, the...
    • 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...
    • My Reality

    • American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS)
    • I was blessed to have an amazing apartment that overlooked the skyline of Florence. The Ponte Vecchio was right beneath my window, and living in such a historical place made me realize the beauty in architecture that has lasted beyond 50 years. ...
    • Outside the Noise

    • Arcadia University: Perugia, Italy
    • This photograph was taken in St. Peter's piazza in front of the Vatican. It is one of my favorites because it represents a quiet moment in a place so alive with sound. The day was filled with so many famous things to see in Rome with so much...
    • Pigeon Play

    • History of Science in Europe
    • Many Italians draw their customs and cultural identity from Roman Catholicism. The Duomo serves as a central beacon to millions of Italians and tourists, Catholic and non-Catholic. Along with our class, thousands of people visited the Duomo on this...
    • Pisa in Black and White

    • England Term
    • Pisa is a very small town where there really is nothing to see but the Leaning Tower. However, the 45 minute walk is definitely worth the trouble. When you get to the tower, even though you’ve heard about it and you’ve seen photographs, it still...
