|I am traveling "light" this month!|
You may wonder, why am I flying to L.A. when I wrote that I am headed to Europe? Well, my program, the Helix Project, begins in L.A. this Sunday morning. Once we are all together in L.A., we will travel to Ojai, CA for a few days of group bonding and an intensive crash course in the history, languages, and culture of Eastern Europe.
I am excited that my trip has finally begun and eager to meet all of the other "Helixers" on Sunday. Right now, I imagine that this trip will be unlike any other program that I have participated in before because of the unique location and the strong emphasis on art, culture, history, and Yiddish culture.
