So my (not so) little sister has the most amazing opportunity this summer! She is going off to Aachen, Germany for 10 weeks to do research in textiles (she’s a Materials Science undergraduate student at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland) so this Friday we threw her a sending off party.
Needless today there was only German food cooked by a bunch of Cubans but it turned out delicious. Lots of brats, sauerkraut, Black Forest cake, pork, potato salad, and oh, beer!
Happy to report that she is safe and sound in Aachen and beginning her amazing 10-week adventure! Although this is not technically “my” journey, it’s as close as I can get right now.
