So I just wanted to update you on my trip!! I got here 2 days ago and the first two days were basically just to meet everyone and to become adjusted to our new surroundings. It is really hot here. I think it’s about 80 during the day in the sun. However, it does get surprisingly cold at night and I actually had to bring out my sleeping bag because I started to get chilly.

Today was our first day of actual classes. I had a Rainforest Ecology, Rainforest Botany, and Environmental Policy and Socio-economics class this morning. All of them seem pretty interesting but I’m especially interested in the rainforest ecology class. We have a trip planned tomorrow to go into town and interview some of the locals about their perceptions of the rainforest and its continued decline.

The only animals I’ve seen so far were a bandicoot, cockatoo, and some bush turkeys but they say there are amethystine pythons that reach 5 feet long around here.

We also have plans to camp out with an aboriginal tribe from the area and also to have a two day homestay with the locals.
