Passport Adventures




We stopped to eat at Zorba's Cafe (GREAT food btw). This Greek and meditterean place was absolutely delicious. I had such Greek fever that I actually went home to watching a classic favorite of mine, My Big Fat Greek Wedding.





I had such a great day with my friend and new blogger, Ambra. It's so funny how friendships start out. I met this bubbling soul last summer, while beginning my first semester as an undergraduate student. It wasn't until this semester, that our relationship has begun to bloom as we discover our common identities and interests. This past saturday, we decided to embark on the PassportDC's embassy tour. We had the goal of visiting each other's residential embassies, with Ambra's being Albania and mine being Ghana. We were able to visit a few other embassies along the way before reaching each others. Unfortunately, we were unable to reach Ghana's for its' distance was too far and with rumbling stomachs, we had to make a decision. Overall, it was a great day to take a break and destress from the chaos of courses. We got some really great pictures out of them, hope you enjoy.

Until then.

This past weekend, I went on a day-trip to New York with a few of my fellow herbivore friends (vegan/vegetarian). We're all part of an on-campus group and decided to head up to NY (a place known for awesome veg options) to try out some great food. SO yes, I can officially say that I have traveled for my food. A bit insane. Glutton? no. Shameless? hell yeah. Honestly, I thought of this trip as just a cheap option to hop on and visit a cool city. I really left a bit different. As a vegetarian for 5 years and still going, I could never see myself as a vegan. Originally, I decided to become a vegetarian because of the overwhelming products and chemicals used in farming and meat processing. It was nauseating to imagine myself putting in these harmful chemicals into my body. Nevertheless, when the question of veganism came up, I wondered why people would torture themselves to a rabbit myself with few luxuries like peanut butter. How ironic, right? I'm sure people would say the same about vegetarians. Anyways, as I write this blog post, I find myself leaning towards a vegan lifestyle. I'm testing out the waters a few days a week to see how it goes. If it something that I do once or twice a week (vegan mondays, etc), that will be just fine by me. Going to this trip opened my eyes not only in terms of dietary meals, but a lot more than I can rattle off in one post. I am learning more and more, how easy it is to cease the experiences and make the most out of them.


Until next time,
Sade
