Back in the fall we were in Antigua, Guatemala for about ten weeks to study Spanish. Ten weeks is the longest that we have stayed in any one place for quite some time.

I saw this sign by our hotel and ever since I saw it I can’t get that old Blur song “For Tomorrow” out of my head. I went and tried to watch the video, but since I am in China that wasn’t such an easy feat since so much is blocked and our VPN doesn’t… Continue reading Smiling for Tomorrow
