"To See the World Through the Eyes of a Child" Guanajuato, Mexico

This photo was taken at my internship with ELAP at a girl's orphanage in the city. This is out in the backyard of the building and I am playing with one of the younger girls, Alejandra. The ELAP Spring Break team came out and put in these tires and painted them. Ale LOVED to play with them! Almost everyday that I was there she would ask if I would help here to jump on them because some of them were too far for her to jump from one to the other. My ELAP experience has influenced me immensely and I still think about these girls everyday.

While traveling from a typical desert city back to our campground, ISA Sevilla & ISA Granada got stuck in the sand. I love this photo because not only are we stuck in the middle of the desert, we all worked together to get us out of the sand.

A novillada bull fight at the Plaza de Maestranza in Sevilla. I thought this was a full fledged bullfight until someone informed me that this was just an amateur fight! This bullfighter had such style in his face-off with the bull.One of the most exciting things I did on my trips.

Jessica Webster (Paris Spring 2B)

Arizona State University

Ruswil, Switzerland

This photo was taken in Ruswil, Switzerland on June 3, 2011. This picture was taken on a random hill in the countryside of Switzerland. I like this picture because amazingly, when I took it the cows all looked directly at me, which I thought was strange but it made a cool picture!
