Experimental Tropical Marine Ecology

It’s Panama Day!
by -- October 8th, 2011

To say that I couldn’t sleep last night is a huge understatement.

It's the big day!

It’s Panama Day! You know what that means… today the Tropical Marine Ecology class will leave our respective campuses and head to the southern-most country in Central America.

Hopefully, I’m not the only one who struggled to sleep last night! I keep worrying that I didn’t pack enough rainy weather clothing… that my Spanish isn’t nearly on point… that I’m going to miss my flight… etc.!

I will update you all every day on our Panama studies. From mangrove forests to coral reefs to hermit crabs, I will serve as your Panama correspondent until Oct. 18.

Humberto, our awesome professor, tells me that this weather prediction will only last for about an hour each day… let’s hope so!

The predicted weather for our week in Bocas del Toro, Panama.

Looking forward to keeping you all updated with our studies! And cross your fingers for minimal rain!
