MIRA MICHELS-GUALTIERI | VIÑA DEL MAR, CHILE | POST 3

Featured image: The greatest photo of all time: My uncle and aunt from the states, my friends Mason, Sidra, Benji, and Kat, and Omar and his entire family all united for breakfast! Today, I was walking home and I saw a kid who could not have been older than seven ask his mom, “What is the relationship to what is happening right now to the Dictatorship? Is it because people want a better life but can’t have it?” His mom…

Featured image: If you were looking for a true update on my sorority life, I’m sorry that this isn’t it. However, I did get initiated, and there is more to come ;). Once people find out that I am a 3/2 student, they always ask whether I like Dartmouth or Vassar better. Which is a fair question, but I know why they actually are asking that. They want validation that their school is better than Vassar. At least that’s what…

Featured image: The faux Irishwoman goes to London edition. London Underground > NYC Subway System. Howdy and welcome to the final episode of “girl finds herself in another country but still finds plenty of things to complain about.” For my final weeks here in Dublin I decided to launch myself out of one European country to another and see if I could maybe shake things up a little bit. I ended up in Camden Town, a part of London near…

Featured image: Shoutout to the instagram that Heather and I run @subtleboba. I have been very inactive but now that I know how cheap it is to get bubble tea delivered, that might change. Midterms week just ended for me. I am officially past the halfway point of the semester, which feels a little weird to say. It seems like I’ve only just started to really get used to living here.  Midterms weren’t too bad since the classwork is pretty…

Featured image: One of the many pictures I took on a recent excursion to New Lanark in Scotland’s countryside. I Touched A Heart. Not figuratively, not imaginatively, but literally. During anatomy, we opened the thoracic cavity of the cadaver and inspected the parietal pleura and pericardium. As Professor Quondamatteo exposed the heart, my mouth widened. The heart wasn’t the size of a fist. It was larger than my palm with my fingers extended. We were tasked to look for the transverse…

Featured image: Iconic pic of 天安门 (Tiananmen), complete with a photo bomb of a cute family. SO, so busy that day. Beijing is weird. Can I say that? I’m gonna. Beijing is weird. My hometown, Buffalo, NY, is not a huge city. Poughkeepsie is even smaller, so I’m not used to a city that’s so big and is full of so many different things and people. Also, the content in my Chinese course is slowly approaching more and more complex…

Featured image: Pictured above is the view from Gellért Hill. This hill was named after Saint Gerard who, according to legend, was assassinated by being rolled down the hill in a barrel. It’s crazy to think that my time in Budapest is officially halfway over, but here I am, waiting to catch a plane to Athens for a sorely needed fall break. I’m stuck between feeling relieved and disappointed. I’m relieved since this means that midterms are over. Four out…

Featured image: The coastal town of Howth! Hello again from Dublin—I’m still here, send help! If you’re like me, a little shoreline gal from coastal Connecticut, you probably aren’t too keen on city living. I feel you! You’re heard! Although it’s pretty sleepy around here, if you aren’t awoken at ungodly hours by cranes dropping large metal beams without a care in the world, then you aren’t living in central Dublin. Instead of fall break at Trinity, there’s something called…

Featured image: Kat, Omar, and me in front of the lookout at the Sebastiana in Valparaíso, one of Pablo Neruda’s famous homes. So… this was technically due a week ago and believe me, it was my intention to get it turned in on time. However, this was made less possible by the current political unrest going on in Chile that started more or less this past Friday, October 18 and that spread to the region of Valparaíso (where I live)…

Featured image: A Self-time Study, Taken On an iPhone on Beijing’s 地铁, On 6号线. I would say a success? As of right now, I’m officially halfway through my time here in Beijing. I kind of can’t believe I’m saying that and that I’ve come this far. Today I took my last midterm and I’m about to start my October break. I must admit, since I’ve last written I haven’t done anything as 厉害 (impressive) as hiking the Great Wall at…
