flight cancelled

Just an update. . . .

My flight that was supposed to be leaving tomorrow morning at 11:00 am has been conveniently changed to Tuesday at 3:00 pm. haha.

Well, thank you hurricane Irene.
Despite this inconvenience, I shall maintain a positive attitude and be thankful that at least I have a little more time to work through the arduous, but intriguing Neotropical Companion. (my required reading for Ecuador)

First post

So, I've got about 4 days until I leave for Ecuador!
I've been excited for the past year, but only now are the nervous feelings acting up.
On the plus side, my flight now leaves at 11:00 am instead of 6:00 am. That's cool.

I am crazy busy right now preparing to leave for Ecuador while at the same time squaring away visa preparations for my spring semester in Chile. difficult.

I do get to see the beautiful St. Michael's College this winter as I attempt to get a job and ski on the nordic team for the 2 months of time I will be in the U.S. it is the Latin American summer vacation.

Can't wait for the amazing experiences to come. . .
