US Marine Corps Sunset Parade

US Marine Corps Sunset Parade

Next stop in my Washington DC adventures: Iwo Jima Memorial. But not just on any old day, I visited during the Marine Corps Sunset Parade at the Iwo Jima Memorial. The parades run from every year from May to August. The parade ends with a silent march just as the sun is setting.  I was in such ... Read More

One Month Later…

One Month Later…

Today marks one month since I landed back in the United States and I still can’t believe I really spent five months in France.

Nigerian-American Girl Cooking in France

Americans over-romanticize French cuisine. When in fact, there’s nothing special about it. Though it does have Italian influences, it’s no Italy where they make pizza and pasta fresh, or Spain – masters of paella.  France produces grapes (for wine), brie cheese, and are experts at bread and fries (baguettes will never be the same for me). Today ... Read More

Magic Fountains & Bubble Men [Barcelona]

The last set of Barcelona photos 🙁 You all don’t understand how much I love this place. I don’t think I complained once while I was there. Such a beautiful city: the people, the food and the overall atmosphere. I’m so happy I got to spend my 21st birthday there. I have to make it ... Read More
