Last month in Cyprus

Dear Friends,
I think it is about time for me to try to wrap up the past semester, at least for now. I am sure the ridiculous and amazing memories will find a way to pop up again in future posts since they have already found a way to pop up in my mind every few seconds.

 The last month in Cyprus was a whirlwind of finals, nights out, packing, holiday celebrations, and sadly, saying our goodbyes. I took this time to adventure around the beautiful little island I had called home for the last four months. These island adventures consisted of a GLS group trip to Paphos and Limasol, managing to squeeze in one last trip to the North side to camp on amazing sand dunes, exploring a castle upon a hill, and a trip to the mountains for a quiet weekend away.


Went on a 40ish km mountain bike ride. This resulted in taking the wrong trails, going halfway up Troodos, hunting unsuccessfully for the Muflan, a wipe out that left Ravi's bike broken for half of the ride, and making it back just before dark.

Thanksgiving! I managed to pull together somewhat of a thanksgiving feast. My cooking skills now include cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole, pumpkin cheesecake, apple pie, mulled wine and a chicken (couldn't find a turkey). We had everyone over for the best substitute thanksgiving I could have asked for.

Until next time,
