Whether you're just joining me or you've followed along before, here are 10 of my past posts that I'm calling "The Keepers."Read More
After La Sagrada Familia, we made our way to Parc Guell, another project by architect Antoni Gaudi. He meant it to become a housing development complete with marketplace and public venue--a live-work-play community!Read More
Inside La Sagrada Familia, nearly every surface is white stone--smooth, cool, white, hard, and in complete contrast to the sandy exterior. The windows all around the building are made of stained glass--blues and greens to the east; oranges, reds, and yellows to the west. This way, as the sun moves throughout the day, the colors reflected inside the basilica change.Read More
Spring might finally have arrived in New Haven! And I feel about as busy as the birds have been the past few mornings. We have a little over one month left in our first year at Yale SOM and I'm certain it's going to fly by. As I mentioned last week, there's a lot of work and seriousness filling my time lately; what I want is a light-hearted space to document all of the fun we're having, too. So for the next several weeks, I'll be posting often with photographs and short notes about what we're up to as we wrap up our first school year at Yale.
To start, some of our favorite places in Barcelona. We traveled there for five days before Amar continued on a school trip to Serbia and Croatia. (You might have already seen a few of our favorite pictures here and here.)Read More

Happy April Fool's Day!
I keep hoping that our weather forecast is a joke, but the snowflake symbol is still hanging around for the weekend...
Rain or shine (or snow), I hope you don't encounter too many giant birds today, or fall for any news hoaxes (my favorite is this BBC report from April 1, 1957), or otherwise end up at the wrong side of a joke on this lovely first day of April.
We traveled to Barcelona last week, and I think I slept off the last of the jet lag this morning. I'm only just starting to sift through our photos from the trip--you can expect a few Spain-related posts in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here is one of my favorite pictures so far...Read More
