I fly out in 12 days.
Where am I going? Funny you should ask.
I’m going on the freaking BEST study abroad program EVER. It’s called the School of Field Studies. This school has set up research base camps all over the world, through which they implement 5 year research plans. University students can study there for a semester or summer term, experiencing research, wildlife, and culture. Sweet.
I’ll start in Tanzania in the Manyara area, and end in Kenya, at Kilimanjaro Bush Camp (KBC) near Amboseli National Park. My program focuses on wildlife management, and the interactions between the maasai people and wildlife, and the challenges this interaction poses to wildlife conservation.
I’ll be able to update periodically, so stay tuned!
And for all my pen pals out there, here are my addresses for each site. Like I said, I’ll be in Tanzania first, and will post when I switch over to Kenya. Postage takes about two weeks.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to Skype and probably won’t be on facebook. Our internet situation and unstable and I have to share with 30 others. I think this will be freeing, so let me go already! :P Please feel free to e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or send mail. I’ll do my best to respond quickly!
