We are Erika Swartz '12 and Meghan Murray '12, Olin students studying abroad
for the fall 2010 semester. We are
former roommates from the land of Beach Sparkle (yes, that was our room's
name). This semester, Erika is in Lima,
Peru, improving her Spanish, eating delicious, delicious, Peruvian platos
(dishes), and having a blast exploring off the beaten track in Peru. Meghan is in Leuven, Belgium learning Dutch, traveling across Europe, and enjoying the best chocolate ever.
most part, we will be blogging on alternating weeks, but we have decided to
turn our blogs into a "Lima vs Leuven" study away competition. Inspired by the Super Marra Bros (Greg '10
and Chris '12), we will tout the benefits of our respective locations (and
liberally give them arbitrary points) while challenging each other to seek out
bigger and better adventures. It should
be good fun!
you are looking forward to an interesting back and forth between two best
friends. We most certainly are. :)
