Hello dear readers, Welcome to our next PhotoPhriday issue. This time the focus is on elephants, as you probably would have guessed by the title.

When we started, we thought we might focus more on this type of article and our previous Genetically Modified Organism article but alas that was not the case.

For in Spain, we have our own New… Continue reading NEW YEAR’S EVE AND THE 12 GRAPES: A SPANISH TRADITION
The exam session is just around the corner, which means that there will be a lot of studying during these holidays. It's not a nice feeling. We thought that some lightheartedness was really needed. Especially for those (nerds!) that like us are spending their phriday night staring at their laptop instead of having a life.… Continue reading PhotoPhriday: Winged, gracious bugs
Fried rice - also known as 炒飯 ("chao faan") in Chinese, nasi goreng in Malay and Indonesian (insert here a dozen other languages...) is a staple in the Asian diet. Growing up, fried rice was the ultimate comfort food, and it still is. As students, we are often tight on cash and time - fret not! Fried… Continue reading My mama’s fried rice
