…and it is not the right weather for it to do that. I love UAE, but when the heat starts following me inside then I know it’s time to go home. 3 more days of roasting and then on to Amsterdam, Detroit, and Seattle!
Everything has so much sugar added here that I am actually addicted to sugar now. Like, I go through withdrawals if I don’t have something sweet. and I thought AMERICA was bad. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I can’t wait to kick that habit when I go home, but it’s physically impossible right now because my diet has been … More I miss real food

It was over after maybe 20 seconds (and the main building actually has a crack in it), but that didn’t stop most of the student body … More Felt an earthquake for the first time today
