A Quiet Day in the Burren

We are halfway through our third week in Ireland, and we cannot believe how the time has flown! Morgan, Aly, and I had planned to walk to the college today, but when we saw the dark clouds warning of rain this morning, we decided we would wait for Robert and the van. No longer than […]

The Beginning of the End

Today (the twenty-first) marked our last full Tuesday here in Ballyvaughan. We will be leaving for Dublin one week from today and everyone is doing their best to enjoy their last few days here.

Return from Cork and Ceili Dancing

After a weekend of enjoying some free time in both Cork and Blarney, we were relieved to only have one class in the afternoon in order to get some rest after some long travels.

Some of us are going to cork, while others are headed to Ennis and others still to Doolin. “I’m excited to travel to Ennis because I’ve traveled abroad before in high school but we weren’t able […]

idi Ide and Hana Fischer Today marks the halfway point in our journey through India and Nepal! We’re having a blast! Some people felt a little under the weather this morning so we had simple foods for breakfast. Everyone was super excited to have toast (usually we just have untoasted bread). They gave us a […]

Written by Stephanie Glaser and Angel: Today we first went to the primary care center. We had a long but extremely interesting and insightful discussion with the main doctor there. Some of the main points include: -patient centered care. In an ideal health system, the doctor should go to the patients home instead of the […]
