The World Never Stops Turning

I apologize greatly for the long delay! I made so many promises of posts I was going to make without predicting the amount of work that would engulf me as I got back into American university life. I hope to get up a photo essay and some reviews of the places I visited since I last wrote. I haven't even written about my last week in Jordan! So much has happened since I have returned but I do have some fantastic news - I have experienced no reverse culture shock! Actually, life is better than it has ever been before in Washington DC. I feel like Jordan was the best thing that ever happened to me. Since I got back I feel like my future and present has fallen into place and my life has a beautiful balance of friends and family, academics and professional work. I can't wait to get more time to chronicle the past couple of months since I have returned but that will have to wait for another time. In the meantime, please check out two videos for me.

The first one is a video made by my fellow Benjamin J. Gilman Scholar on my study abroad program in Jordan, about the many misconceptions that were corrected during our time abroad:

The second one is a cooking video my friends and I made for our course "The World on a Plate: How Food Shapes Civilization", that instructs you on how to make two of my favorite Jordanian dishes:

Enjoy! I will write more next time!
