The last full day!

To start off the day, we had an in-depth tour of a Statkraft hydropower plant. We saw multiple turbines and had a chance to see the layout of the entire watershed feeding into this specific plant in Vík.

Free Day in Vik

Today was the free day in Vikøyri, Norway. It is a small town with few people, but many great hiking trails. Most of the group decided to try our luck hiking to the top of the mountains that surround the town. I left with a small group of people, determined to challenge ourselves and see the sights.

Rome Day 3: Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the National Research Council, and The Vatican

We started the day taking a bus to the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the National Research Council, and met our guide Vitto Trianni there. We began by learning a little bit about the NRC. It was established in 1923 and their mission is to carry out the research of all 101 of their institutes.

Saying "ciao" to Italy

Our final day of the trip consisted of us getting up way too early and riding over to Rome's da Vinci airport.

All's well that ends well

Day 18- the last day of my internship and everything beautiful in the past few days has almost come to an end.

Exploring Bergen and Boat Ride to Vik

Today we had the morning free in Bergen, so after breakfast most of us went hiking up one of the mountains near Bergen in small groups. The mountain offered some great views of the city and fjord, and hiking through the forest on the mountain was pleasant.

Paneer: To Cheese or Not To Cheese?

Wow! I can’t believe we have been in India for two-and-a-half weeks already. At this time three weeks ago, I was taking a final in Mass Transport and Separation Principles, and today I gave a presentation on my final project in India. To reflect on the past few weeks, I thought I would talk about some of my favorite moments of the trip!
