  3. Ukraine My favorite english class

    I think I can safely say this was my favorite class while teaching in Stebnyk, in the Lvivska oblast of Ukraine. This was one day where they all wore traditional Ukrainian shirts to celebrate one of the many many many Ukrainian holidays. I just had to get in and take a picture with them. Now I have my own traditional Ukrainian blouse and love to wear it for my annual Ukrainian Christmas party back home.

  9. Morocco Learning how to weave carpets

    While in Morocco I learned how to make two types of carpets.  This is a pile/knotted carpet, almost always woven in red, sometimes with black designs.  The looms were set up in women's homes so they could work whenever they had a chance.  The women sold the carpets in the local market, or kept them for their own use. This type of carpet would take several weeks to complete.
