My family owns a home in a nearby neighborhood. My cousins studied at the University, but I had not visited there until my recent trip back to visit my family. It was wonderful and inspiring to see all of the various schools of studies, we caught a Pumas game at the stadium, and toured the lovely botanical gardens. It made... More
