Conclusion

In conclusion, this was a beautiful experience that was filled with incredible sadness. I recommend everyone to go abroad if they have the ability and the means to or to visit Argentina someday in their lifetime. My second recommendation is to go with a strong support group back at home in case anything goes wrong….

For Charles Fuller Ross

My always told us before ski trip: “prepare for the worst, expect the best”. It was her way of reminding us that conditions can get pretty bad and equipment breaks, but if you’re prepared, it’ll all work out. With her mantra echoing in my head, I went to Argentina with a prepared mindset. I expected…

The Small Stuff Makes A Big Difference

Living in London

I live at the flats on Goldhawk Road in Shepard’s Bush. I have three roommates who are all from Pitt, but none of us have met before. I took an uber from the airport here which was not cheap but understandably priced. The only problem with the flat is that there is no air conditioning…
