Checking in... from Madison

Yipes!  3 weeks have past since my last post.  A bit longer than I had intended (but this is almost always the case with me and this blog, it seems).  Anyway, I'm still alive and kickin' up here in Wisconsin, in case you were wondering.  Language school has kept me very, very busy.  I'm in class until 1:00 every day and usually have 3-4 hours of homework at night.  That might not sound like a lot but, as it turns out, language learning is HARD WORK!  In fact, after 4 weeks of 5-day-a-week classes and homework, I'm a bit brain-dead right now.  So...  I'll let my pictures do the rest of the talking...

Bangla homework

Swinging at the park (it's blurry, but that's what happens on the swing.  Duh.)

The view from the top of the building where I take my classes.  That's the lovely Lake Mendota, one of Madison's two lakes.  I live somewhere up along the shoreline.

I'm doing homework on The Terrace at the University of Wisconsin's student union.  

Sand volleyball on the lake.

Laughing at my roommates.

And again.

Kelsey, me, and Becky - finally a nice picture.  :)

After Concert on the Square near the Wisconsin State Capitol.


  1. Are you finding that language-learning at this pace is harming your English without necessarily improving your Bangla? That's what it feels like with the Russian that I am doing, also this intensively. Still, I bet you know more Bangla now than when you started. Rob

  2. Wow, what a lovely place to live! I will have to visit there sometime. And I'm guessing the weather is nice, because it looks like you have a great tan going! You look great!
    Miss you! Can't wait for your return!
