find the perfect pair of glasses, but I don't need glasses
I am finishing my phd in anthropology with a US university, and affiliated with a research institute here in Germany. It's really just an excuse to travel a lot and learn languages. (I am a big nerd on the inside.) So, I have lived a lot of places doing research and studying. I love meeting smart/silly/artistic/dorky people near and far.
Against all nationalist and other discriminatory politics.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Foz do Iguazu in Brazil, on the border with Argentina and Paraguay. Breath-taking.
It's a huge waterfall with multiple areas where the water comes down... hiking all around, rainbows everywhere b/c of the mist.
