“Oh, London is a man's town, there's power in the air;And Paris is a woman's town, with flowers in her hair;And it's sweet to dream in Venice, and it's great to study Rome;But when it comes to living there is no place like home.”
There is so much there. Buildings that bend this way and that way, trees that house birds..but in the sky, blue waters, assortments of accents and bazaars, castles, mountains…Europe is truly a beauty, and the time I spent there either crying about my hunger, foot ache, or off on a random curb sketching or writing...I will truly never forget. Although touring five countries in five days is no kid’s play, I have loved and lost moments. Maybe I’ve even loved my lost moments.
Through early mornings and late nights, I have learned that Europe is a medley of overbearing cultures and passions.There, you will find awe-evoking views, mismatched accents with appearances, a boundless amount of cigarette smoke, overpriced fish filets, and a (if I can say) well dressed yet extremely grumpy Duriba passed out on a park bench or train seat sleep-mumbling a punjabi mashup of “Gold Digger.”
Besides the alluring landscapes, architecture, infrastructure, and FANTASTICAL street style… some of the gems I unearthed there were not in macarons or potential profile picture locations. They were in souls: black, brown, white, olive, and caramel bodies with golden souls. Through airports, streets, aircrafts, ladies’ rooms, street benches, to bazaars...I have deemed myself qualified enough to arrive to the following conclusion: there are beautiful souls all over the world.
The following series will exhibit tales of people I have met in six countries and beyond: Switzerland, France, Italy, England, America and Germany throughout my weeklong stays there.
I write to express my passions, views and opinions on different types of cheese, and to heal myself. I am an aspiring law student and hand model for McDonalds. I currently reside in the United States, and study at UT Austin. Most importantly, I wholeheartedly hope you enjoy what my work has to offer.
