In the meantime we are now studying marine ecology which involves snorkeling every single day, plus lots of reading scientific papers, writing lab reports based on the data we collected when snorkeling (I'm getting good at holding a clipboard, pencil, fish ID, camera, and quadrat while snorkeling in some rough swells. We are also starting to collect data for individual projects. My point is between my lack of a computer and the amount of time consumed with this course, the blog is going on the back burner for a while. So as long as you don't hear from me, assume I am still alive, healthy, happy, and learning more than I ever thought I would about yellowtail damselfish and all the other species of fish in the Galapagos. We have an overnight field trip next week to Floreana which I am very excited for. Besides that, life is life.
And so I say adios to you all. The next time I will blog will probably be with my parents or when this class ends next Saturday. Maybe I'll make my parents do a guest post about our adventures as tourists on a cruise boat. Until then, I will continue to take pictures and mental memories to share with you all when I get back!
