Hey everyone. I'm sorry I haven't been too active on this blog, it's midterm season and I've been swamped.

Las Fallas

Saturday, March 17, 2012

Hello from Valencia! This week in Valencia is a festival called Las Fallas. Traditionally, it is a week long festival in honor of San Jose, with the cultmination of the festival on the Dia de San Jose, which is March 19, but now it has more of a touristic importance than a religious one.

Outdoor Climbing Attempt #1

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

This past weekend I tried outdoor climbing for the first time. I should precede this story by explaining that I bouldered (climbing without ropes) for the first time only five weeks ago and learned to top rope only last thursday. So with my vast experience, and by that I mean next to no experience, I trekked out with some friends, all experienced climbers, to a popular spot outside of the town of Lyons, CO.

Keeping Up with the Healthiest City

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Over the past few weeks, I've been trying out a few different places to work out. I had never worked out very much before I came to CU Boulder, but as it is the healthiest city in America, I couldn't help but be influenced. There are so many awesome work out studios in Boulder that offer a bunch of different classes. These are types of classes that I had never heard of before I came here, such as hula hooping. I have yet to try this class, but it's definitely on my list of things to do before I leave for the summer.

Get Away to Get Going

Friday, March 9, 2012

Sometimes, you have weeks of school that hit you like a bus. Last week was one of those weeks for me; between two midterms and two papers, which required an inordinate amount of time spent in the library, I was feeling pretty checked out as Friday rolled around. I even tried to get a head start on some of my readings for the coming week, but all I could do was hit the "next episode" button on Netflix.

Ski Season

Friday, March 9, 2012

So one of the best parts of living in Colorado has to be ski season. With the big resorts only a 2-3 hour drive away from Boulder, how could you not learn to ski or snowboard? When I got to CU freshman year, I started to learn to snowboard. Now, 2 years and a lot of falls and bruises later, I can kind of hold my own on the mountain! I thought I'd share some pictures from my last few excursions to the mountains so you all can see what Shaun White is up against.

Granada: The City of Flamenco and Tapas

Thursday, March 8, 2012

Of all of the places I have ever been in my life, Granada has got to be one of the coolest and most original cities ever. It has some of the richest history in all of Spain, and some of the best food, if I do say so myself!

Bodily Rhythms!

Hello,

This past week was great! The African Students' Association participated in the Culture Shock, 2012 which attracted different cultural performances. We did our signature contemporary dance routine featuring dance steps from across the African continent.

And we came second:
