    Travel Journal from Nepal Nepal | Sat Nov 22, 2014

    Travel Journal from Russia Moscow (Moskva), Russia | Sat Nov 15, 2014

    As I'm sure some of you have noticed, the past few weeks have been relatively dry blog entries, not much going on. Seems most of the time is sucked up by homework and grad apps. However, fate has smiled upon us and given me something to write about. So the other day, I was in my room working and smell food burning. I think nothing of it, our floor has …
