My Visit to Bryan

Yesterday I drove to Bryan, Texas to visit the cemetery where my parents and many of my other relatives are buried. I took several pictures and added them to a website I contribute to Find a Grave
I also wanted to see my grandmother's old house on Finfeather Road and see downtown Bryan. My grandmother's house has been painted green and has a fence around it but other than that looks the same. I wish I could have gone in. Several places in downtown Bryan were there in the 60's and probably before that but there were also a lot of new cute little stores and restaurants including The Village, a vegetarian friendly restaurant where I had a hummus wrap and tomato basil soup while enjoying live entertainment
When did Bryan get so cool?
Anyway, here are some pictures. The cemetery pictures are on Find a Grave.

A Kiva Loan to Marlene of Paraguay

From Kiva:
"Marlene is from the city of Villarrica. Like many young people, she is making sacrifices in order to get ahead and overcome. She is studying nursing, which she wants to use to help other people with their health which is very important. She says that her family inspires her to continue striving to grow. Marlene dreams to being able to graduate as a nurse so that she can be useful through her profession, not only to herself, but also to society through her knowledge. She says she's been striving a lot, and the loan she took out earlier was to be able to pay the fees for her career. She's seeking this loan to be able to invest again in the fees for her profession, and thus be able to continue striving and working."
