Granada, Spain

I took this photo during a program visit to the Alhambra in the town I was living in, Granada, Spain. These intricate wall carvings were so striking and beautiful and I was so glad I captured the moment. It was a special moment of standing in a really old building and thinking about all the people who had walked on these floors and the lives they had lived there; I especially thought of how different those lives must have been. During my time abroad I reflected a lot on the great luck I had to follow the steps of people so many years before me who had built monuments, started wars, and worshipped in the places I now walked. I’m so glad for the experience I have had to look at the places around me in a new light- even back home.
