Le Modele Noir

During the puente, I visited family in Paris and maximized my time in order to stay there for a week. It is needless to say that Paris is stunning and there are so many wonderful sights and fun experiences to be had, especially when you have a full week to enjoy them. One of the […]

Netflix in Spain

One of the things I first noticed when I arrived in Spain eight months ago was that my Netflix selection grew bigger. I was excited to explore some Spanish shows and movies, especially because one of my goals was to immerse myself in the culture and try to understand its idioms, inside jokes, stereotypes, etc. […]

Dunkin’ Donuts who? (by Jessica Posada)

I crammed my bloated carry-on into an overhead compartment with the help of a man with dark hair. I checked my seat number on my boarding pass and saw that I sat in the middle of the middle aisle, otherwise known as the worst seat. I lamented the lack of televisions while the woman seated […]
