Study Abroad Photo Contest 2009
Stephen Short, "Local Lucha Libre Entertainment", Cuernavaca, Mexico
This photo was taken at a Lucha Libre wrestling match. The place was packed and the audience was really getting into it!

There are abandoned shops similar to these found throughout Jamaica. They have been abandoned but are never torn down.
Angela Brothers, "Empanadas", Nicoya, Costa Rica
We had a cooking class every Friday afternoon at one of the host family’s homes. This was the grandson of our cooking teacher. He was helping us make Empanadas.
Nicholas Snyder, "Overlooking Heidelberg from the Castle", Heidelberg, Germany

Keleih Kitano, "Kyoto's Golden Pavilion", Kinkakuji, Kyoto, Japan
Jeremy Yarbrough, "Descending to the Base of the Falls", Chutes d'Ekom, Cameroon
This is the tiny jungle trail that leads to the base of the Chutes d’Ekom waterfalls in western Cameroon. Reaching the base can be perilous: the trail is never any wider than a motorcycle tire, extremely steep, and almost impossibly slick due to the moss-covered rocks and mud that make up the trailbed being constantly soaked by the falls’ spray.
Nicholas Snyder, "Planted Tunnel Covering in Linz, Austria", Austria
Cars driving under a park in Linz, Austria. The park used to be a freeway before they covered it and planted it. Now the neighborhoods who used to be separate come together in the park.
Nicholas Snyder, "Garbage Mover at MVV", Heidelberg, Germany
Here the class is observing giant claws moving waste material at the biomass electricity plant in Mannheim.

Casey Orr, "Dominican Pride", Veragua, Dominican Republic
I took this picture while we were completing a service project at an elementary school in Veragua. Will Watson, a member of our group, designed this mural to paint on the front of the school featuring the two founders of the school, along with the words “Dominican Pride” painted in the center of the mural.
