Koalas, Guatemala, and Being Muslim in America

If this blog had a status, it would say:
Big City Pretty is: a sickie. Not feeling well, sore throat, not sleeping well.

Australia has suffered terrible fires over the last few days. This picture broke my heart. The koalas are suffering! What a tender, vulnerable moment.

This interesting article describes an experiment about what it's like to be Muslim in America. A group of Islamic Studies students from American University are traveling across the country exploring that theme. Sometimes they dress in Muslim headscarves. Sometimes they meet with interesting people: Latino Muslims, Muslim rappers, or refugees. Their blog is http://journeyintoamerica.wordpress.com/.

Yesterday, a dream came true. I got the final confirmation that I am going to Guatemala- in three weeks!! Can't wait, can't wait:)
