Zaragoza, Spain. Their name stood out so brightly on a map of Eastern Spain that I couldn’t pass it up.
A quiet town complete with a bull ring, abundant mixtures of baroque and classical architecture, and the beautiful Río Ebro cutting gently through the center. A town where you can find full meals for 5 euros and plenty of sidewalk cafes to keep you hopping all day and all night. A town where many Spaniards visit during pilgrimage… Continue reading What’s In a Name? A Trip to Zaragoza, Spain

103 pounds all packed up (shhh…don’t tell about the extra 3, they let it slide) 😉 Ready to hit the skies! Bonus: Jet Lag doesn’t exist in Kuwait! At least I hope not since teaching starts 8 hours after touching ground. In the carry ons: Computer, 2 books to read, 1 math book and 1 Arabic book.

Waited for the work permit. Waited for the Visa. … Continue reading Flying High
