So first of all, hello ! These are not high quality pictures as I find it hard to bring my heavy DSLR camera everytime I take a stroll around town. However, these are phone pictures that I've cumulated during the past month. Most of these are taken around campus, in the library, downtown Laramie or in the interstate (between Colorado and Wyoming). 
It is a beautiful town, with gorgeous skies and mountains. I thought I have mentioned that before. Nevertheless, if you're not fan of liquor/partying/outdoor sports, you will probably die with a slow transcending agony in this place (as it is almost my case). In Laramie, you have pretty much nothing to do, which is kind of frustrating. Am trying to live with that for now...
"It's just a year, it's just an experience..." 
I know, but so far, it's not a pleasant one. It gets pleasant when you're around amazing people who cares about every single inch of you (and the sad part of this : they are already leaving this town). Other than that, nothing is really interesting about the American culture/lifestyle that am far away from appreciating.  
I miss my country and my people. I never thought that, one day, I am gonna say this but Tunisia/Tunisians are the best. There is something special about those North-African countries that I can't discern yet. 

I might be ending this blog post soon as I have nothing really important to mention besides the cold and the "shitiness" of the educational system in here (currently suffering from home-works and reading).

Take care, folks !

The journey. Part I

First stop in the US : Washington DC.
Impressions ? It's was unbelievably beautiful, busy, the hustle and bustle, the smell of bureaucracy was reaching out to people in the streets, on the subways, in restaurants and even lost kids like us in  GW University park. 
It's late, I know. They are pretty much shitty and repetitive photographs...I know. But the memories of these days will always remain (Metallica ?). I met so many amazing people. We got to know each other and bond in a very short period of time. Eventually, each one of us ended up in a different place (state) and we got separated.
Starting with my Tunisian partners in crime : Salma, Heni, Wassim. My Jordanian Abdullah, and the Palestinian beauties that am so thrilled to have in my life, Nadia and Raghad. Without forgetting all of the amazing Egyptian, Lebanese and the various nationalities that I got the chance to meet and know more about. That was a heck of a week, people ! 
See you all very very soon, and wish you all the best for this journey. 

While I was submitting these photos, I kept looking through the window and bloody hell ! The rain haven't stopped since the very early morning. It's such an unpleasant weather in Laramie. 
Yes, I said Laramie !
Now I am in Laramie Wyoming. No more buildings, cityscapes, busy streets, rush in the plain nature, in a small beautiful town surrounded by huge mountains and wild nature. 

I started to fall in love with the beauty of the town. No matter how small or boring it is, I do find the town highly attractive (some people might not agree). However, they say that it snows a lot in this area. So, I am sort of getting ready and buying snow clothes and shoes. I do not like snow, nor heavily rainy days, but I do enjoy grey sad weather. Apparently, in Laramie you can witness the four season within 24 hours. Scored !

I will talk more about Laramie in the next post (hopefully tomorrow), along with some few pictures I took with my phone while strolling around the streets.

Greetings people !
