I had quite a day today too. Tropical terrestrial ecology started yesterday, and I have been enjoying it. The teacher is big on drawing things, which makes me happy. We have been running all over the island, and learning about some land based ecology, which is a nice change for me. Today we woke up early and drove to the other side of the island. We climbed up to a pass on the top of the island, enjoyed some great views, and climbed down the other side. It was quite a hike. Then when we got back I was doing some stuff on my computer, and I had a cute little Tahitian girl sitting next to me for an hour or two (relax, Caryn, she was about 4) I would show her my pictures-of animals, for instance, and she would tell me what they are called. Then we had class again, and Sal gave us some good news- the university is knocking off six credit hours worth of tuition from our fees. Its the equivalent of getting $4200! Finally, we went bobbing for exotic fruit, which was crazy! I lost, but yesterday when we raced crabs, I won.
Anyway, thats all for now. Tomorrow I will be leaving for Tahiti for a few days–when I get back I should finally have some pictures.
