Freiburg Week 1 (Orientation, Black Forest)

January 20, 2018

My second "vlog" is up !

I have a detailed run down of my first (and a half) week in Freiburg,Germany. I had orientation, classes, and some free time to explore the city and get to know the people in my program. As well as the oppurtunity to go on a very beatiful hiking trip to the Black Forest. Finished with a traditional German "Kaffee und Kuchen." If you want to see how my first week in Freiburg was then watch the video down below.

Next week we will be going on our first excursion to Berlin, Germany and Prague, Czech Republic! I'm excited to start working on some photos and videos from that trip. 

Check back next week for my next video, 

Bis zum nächsten Mal!

Intimacy, gender, and public space

by Maddy

Within my first hour of being in Morocco, I became attuned to the way that men dominate public space. Whether you’re walking through the medina or driving past the busy city center, women are conspicuously absent from sidewalks and doorways.
