Walking the Streets in Alajuela, Costa Rica — By Jennifer Shipp

I missed a few days of writing because we’ve been either busy or really exhausted from being busy. Finding our way in and out of Alajuela for our classes takes quite a bit of energy right now.

Finding the Alajuela Yoga Studio — By Jennifer Shipp

Seven days after we arrived here in Alajuela, Costa Rica, I finally tracked down a place to take classes.

It wasn’t moving, but it seemed to like the lighter shade of yellow on the wall in opposition to the darker shade further to the ...

Pets, Walmart, and Other Things — By Lydian Shipp

This morning, as far as I knew, the original plan was to get up, work on my homework (work, in the case of my parents), work on some Spanish, eat lunch, work some more on my homework and on Spanish, maybe talk to my friends, play my guitar, and whatever else I could do.Well, that plan didn't work out.As we walked out the door, I had already anticipated that today would go by slowly, and at the end ...
