I was home in time for Valentine's Day!
We tried a Persian restaurant called Behesht! It was beautiful and tasty. Also the prices were really nice. ;)
We wouldn't recommend this yogurt drink, though. :D It is not sweetened! It's traditional Persian.
One night, we had a Latin dancing "FHE" (Family Home Evening) in the cultural hall at church. Boricua is a great teacher!
I went to school in February, too.
I love the alleys I walk after getting off at Holburn station!
Campus blends with the rest of the city.
I love the Las Vegas ad on this bus_ "Visit a place where your accent is an aphrodisiac." Boricua and I have realized that going to Vegas is really exciting destination for some Europeans - or at least the ones at his work who were hoping that would be their year-end reward-trip!
Monday morning 10AM classes of Development Management wrapped up this lent term, too.
The other tube station near LSE is called Temple.
A few weeks ago, the society of International Development at LSE (DESTIN) did a dinner cruise on the Thames in order for us to network with development professionals.
It was very cool - the man who was the Afghanistan correspondent for the BBC gave a speech, and both Boricua and myself got to talk to a lot of really cool people. He told me it was interesting for him to be surrounded with a lot of other people that, despite our diverse nationalities, shared a lot of my ideals and, in my own words, drive on the same intellectual freeways. The speech the correspondent gave was about humanitarian intervention, military action, and nation-building.
It was so surreal to be eating dinner with my HUSBAND (it's been almost two years and the word is still as fresh and favorite - it makes me feel so grateful!), talking with colleagues and professionals at our table from Mexico, Japan, and the UK, all while looking out at Big Ben from the Thames!
