    Today I got an email from a student for this summer and it totally made me miss everyone from the trip!! We are all planning a reunion soon so I am super excited about that :) Well this is going to be short and sweet because I am back in America where everything is so fast paced and I have two exams coming up that I need to study for! Here are …

    It’s been a beautiful and academically challenging semester. Suddenly discovering that we had a free weekend as a group, and with some clever, diligent coordination by our Spanish professor Cristina, we took off for a beach on the Pacific. After a hot, long drive in which virtually everything went wrong,  we arrived in a small beach town close to one of the heavily developed resort areas. This area, though, remained …

    As an avid baseball fan and a diehard Red Sox fan I took to the game of cricket quite eagerly. The game did not fail to impress. We were fortunate enough to be in the city of Mysore for the World Cup of Cricket where India played Sri Lanka in the finals. A typical game of cricket can last up to 8 hours, and I spent almost the entirety of …

    Erraid Island: A Skinny Dipper’s Paradise. I am sitting alone on top of a high rock overlooking panoramic views of mermaid heaven. There is no horizon, only a misty fading where the ocean supposedly meets the sky, adding to the mysteriousness of this place. With not a soul anywhere in sight, I have utter privacy in the company of the heather, granite, and salt water surrounding me. Contrary …

    We entered a giant gate, tables, and chairs, and pots lay on the sides of the road. Inside the poly-tunnel there wasn’t any plants growing instead there was a luscious garden of old stuff for low prices. We entered a shack and learned about “Waste Busters” the facility that we were at which collects recycling from Moray county and takes peoples cool unwanted junk and sells it.  Day two we basically …

    For all of you interested in what’s going on in India, I will try my hardest to sum what I know, have learned and experienced so far. Upon our arrival I was in complete bliss, living at college guesthouse. I loved the thatched roof capsule 12 of us girls lived in, our crazy friend the bandicoot and rat who ended up biting Bettny one night, and the enormous array of …

  • India Thus Far


    by: JuliaMiller

    created on: Mar 22, 2011 | India

    India so far has been a whirl-wind.  So much happens in so little time.  Writing this, I regret not blogging more throughout the trip, but since things have gotten interesting, I've had very little access to the internet.  I think the nest way to handle writing so little on so much is to just give you a tiny bit from a particular lens... Although I would regard India as an amazing place, …

  • True Life: Still in India

    So it's Monday, March 21, 2011….can it really be true? Time is a wild thing. The days are full and long, but the weeks and months seem short. I just finished writing my mid semester assessment paper and my service learning paper, and it was hard to grasp how long we’ve been here and how much we’ve done! My past two months have been full of wonderful things. I’ve been living …

    A week that begins with a free morning can never go wrong. This was proven by the glorious week I had, both inside and outside the classroom. In Worldviews and Consciousness this week we had a guest speaker who presented her views on energy healing and it's relationship to distortion and disease in the body. She took us through the 7 chakras (crown, brow, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral, and base), …
