  • “How is it still raining? It’s pouring down harder than yesterday. We woke up at 6am, planning to paddle 10 miles up to Emerald Cove. My kitchen group ate our leftover Cinnamon-Raisin Bread before packing the boats. It’s getting easier to pack them as we eat our rations, but it remains a chore. We...

  •             For spring break my mom and I went to San Miguel, El Salvador. El Salvador is just at tiny country of the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is a tropical country meaning it is very hot and humid.             When we got there the only thing you could feel was the heat and the humidity, it...

  • Normal 0 /*-->*/ Falafel, falafel, falafel!  I just wanted a cheeseburger.  Unfortunately, in Jordan and Israel that was just not common.  Instead, you would eat falafel, which is a lot like hushpuppies.  It comes on flatbread with fresh tomatoes and peppers.  It actually tastes pretty good...
