Speaking of blogs, six student bloggers are back at their keyboards, sharing their day-to-day lives at St. Lawrence.

Lunch is usually at least three courses. We eat a lot of potatoes, pork, and eggs. Most of the food is really good- I have to say my favorite dish is the tortilla espanola, which is similar to a thick omelet with potatoes and onions. Very delicious! Andrea even taught me how to make them! Read more...
