Field Report: Puentes New Orleans

May Field Report: Puentes New Orleans

I am officially at the half way point of my service. This past month has gone by so quickly. I only realize that when it is time to write another blog post and I wonder where the time has gone. I have been moderately busy at work. The Tulane Service Learners finished up their work and I’ve been printing out the flyers and research papers that they produced so I can add these things to the sustainability binder. I get some satisfaction from this and am in the process of updating the contact info and project descriptions as well. The newsletter is also keeping me busy seeing as our service learner is not doing the “Featured Latino” section anymore. I get to interview people again and write up my on articles and make my own relationships with them, it is fun and I forgot that I enjoyed the interview/write up process so much.

On a more personal note, my parents, Christina and David, are coming in from Minneapolis on a train tomorrow. So, a little bit of home will be here with me in New Orleans for a week. This is a much welcomed visit, I do miss home and I am looking forward to eating well for the next week and trying out some restaurants that I have had my eye on.

Will update more next month!
