Caitlin Moriarty '13 won the Global Education photo contest with a picture she took in Suzdal, Russia while on the Dickinson-in-Moscow summer immersion program. Here is the story behind Caitlin's picture:
"Students from the 2011 Moscow summer immersion program walk through a field in the early evening, towards the center of the town of Suzdal. The tall bell tower in the background was within the walls of the convent where we were staying, in a former clergy residence that had become a small hotel. Located about three hours from Moscow on the ancient Golden Ring, Suzdal remains pre-industrial, with dozens of churches and monasteries throughout the town, some only accessible by small worn foot paths. Though Suzdal is a popular tourist area, it is easy to forget this. It seems to have been left to stay behind in another century. Throughout our time in Suzdal, I was continuously taking pictures, causing me to fall behind the rest of the group. While this allowed me to take this shot, I had to run down the hill to catch up."
