Bowl Trip

San Antonio Riverwalk (see more)
Northwestern University and Rice University are not known for football glory, but this year both schools were in bowl games. What's more both bowl games are in the state of Texas. Road trip! First, it was down to San Antonio on December 29 to see the Northwestern Wildcats take on the University of Missouri in the Alamo Bowl. NU lost an exciting contest in overtime, 30-23. Then, it was on to Houston on December 30, where the Rice Owls owned Western Michigan 38-14 in the Texas Bowl. Then, it was back to Richardson to celebrate New Year's Eve at home.

"Everything is going very well here! Lesotho is awesome and you should visit sometime. It's been a great experience to see Masianokeng after talking about it in the class that I took (though I never thought that I would say that).
