The fact that I am leaving the country hadn’t hit me until I tried to registed with Delta for my flight to Ecuador! My family and friends have all helped me prepare for this month long adventure, but my parents have mostly been worried I will get in some sort of trouble. Parents worry too much. I’m extremely excited to go on this trip to study and research different types of insects for my future degree in entomology, however I am anxious for the challenges and tasks that await me in the next month because I will be experience things that I have never before experienced. Hopefully it wont be too hot!
