I just finished a six-week journey across Europe to Romania, where I now am serving as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar for the 2016-2017 academic year. During the fall term, I’ll be in Bucharest, teaching at the University of Bucharest and at the National University of Theatre and Cinematography; during the spring term, I’ll be in Cluj, teaching at Babeș-Bolyai University.
May Break in Belize
For my May break before summer school, I spent 10 days in Belize, a former British colony (British Honduras) in Central America, and still a member of the Commonwealth. For me, this was a personal retreat: nothing planned other than reading, writing, and contemplation. Belize City is an inexpensive and direct two-hour flight from Houston, and a trip to this serene country can be quite budget friendly, if you stay away from the touristy stuff.
Spring Break in Costa Rica
I spent my week of Spring Break in Costa Rica. For part of the trip, I reunited with Stuart Brown, a classmate of mine at UT-Austin in the late 80s. The country is beautiful but absolutely overrun with American tourists and, consequently, a bit pricey. Still, I’m glad I got to go and was particularly happy to reunite with an old friend.
