This has nothing to do with UPEACE or Costa Rica. Just sat down and started collecting a playlist of great early-90s songs. Suggestions are welcome:
SME means Sony Music Entertainment - they may have restricted access to a bunch of the videos from being used in playlists. WTF?
VEGuary passed, and it went well. To celebrate, I went to a restaurant in town, Maya Lounge, and had a beautiful bloody steak. Nice.
This will be a short update. After much waiting and a crashed hard drive (where I backed up almost everything on Backblaze, so not a huge loss), I finally got the videos of me singing at the latest Open Mic Night at UPEACE. The first one is a song from High School Musical (with Verena from Germany) and the second is the Elephant Love Medley from Moulin Rouge (with the ever-present Elizabeth from the States). Enjoy:
50 UPEACE students just went to El Salvador (30 hours and 3 border crossings from Costa Rica) to observe the elections. I am preparing a photo essay on this - stay tuned for more here on the blog.
My Year in Costa Rica
I'm studying an MA programme (Media, Peace and Conflict Studies) at the UN mandated University for Peace in Costa Rica 2011-12. This blog is about my experiences here, in and out of school.
