Note: This is the second entry in a series of posts about my first visit to Haiti on Dec 30-Jan 2. You can read the first post here. The events in this post took place on December 31, 2010. The day started super early at 5:30 am. We were served a somewhat peculiar (to me) […]


Note: This is the first post in series reviewing my first four days in Haiti, on my first trip to Haiti. I know I probably sound like a silly American in my posts, but please bear with me. Thanks! I didn’t sleep the night before my flight to Port Au Prince, due to my nervousness […]


Back From Haiti

in #Haiti,Faith,Travel

Back from Haiti. Sad that I was only able to be there for four days. Wish I had spent more time there with the team.Awesome way to bring in the New Year. Haiti was great. The country is beautiful. So are the people. It’s not nearly as scary as Western media would have you think. […]


According to my calendar I am supposed to be in Haiti right now. Oh, but I am not. Instead, I am laying in bed in my apartment in Manhattan. Let’s rewind, shall we? Sunday morning around 5 am I was on my way to my friend Karen’s apartment. Karen is someone I have met through […]


The countdown is in full effect and I am in the midst of prepping for Haiti and winding down for 2010. I guess today I need to check my list of things to pack, and make sure I purchase any other items at the store, since they’ll all be closed tomorrow. Party People Last weekend […]

I’m home in LA for a week. By the beach. I’ve missed it. I’m here visiting family. I probably won’t be able to make it back for Thanksgiving, and since I am going to Haiti the day after Christmas, I probably won’t be able to go home for Christmas either. Every time I come to […]


Biking Across Africa

October 17, 2010

in Travel

The other day, Natalie Sission of tweeted about how she signed up to bike across Africa. The tweet caught my eye because…who bikes across (or in this case, down?) an entire continent? Like, how is that even possible? I did a little clicking around and discovered Natalie is doing this trip with Tour d’Afrique, […]


Why I’m Going To Haiti

September 30, 2010

in #Haiti,Travel

As you may know, I have a bit of a travel bug and I’m always looking for places to travel. A few years ago I made it a personal goal to take at least one international vacation every year. My next international trip will be to Haiti. Haiti is a peculiar “vacation” destination, and the […]


Two weekends ago I was hanging with a few of my friends from MIT here in the City. Miss SQ was in town, and decided to grace us with her presence. When we get together (Mr. M being the third spoke on our wheel of fun), we tend to have the best of times. As […]
