Friends, Fun, Food (For Thought)

I have taken more than 2,800 pictures to record the first five weeks of our program. My cellphone seems to be on the verge of a strike.

Right now at the Miami beachside hotel, while pictures are being uploaded to my laptop, I am looking back at all captured moments of our "almost-too-good-to-true" U.S. adventure.

Beautiful days are just fleeting. Each day that has passed is becoming our common good old memory.

To love or to hate... Donald Trump

To love or to hate... Donald Trump

The WPI program started almost one month ago. In these days, the most repeated thing is that this 2016 presidential election is unusual, the most weird election in the recent years of the United States.

That idea has been repeated by citizens on the streets, academics, journalist, or politicians (democrats or republicans).
