Kobil Petrol Staion

On our way to Iringa, weather got the best of us and flooded the campsite we were to stay at. After much delibera- tion, our fearless admins and crew found us a palce to stay in Chalinze. While it did not match the luxury of places we had stayed at (and would stay at), it was for one night. They had places to pitch the tents, cook an amazing dinner (thanks to our fabulous cooks), cook up pizza (courtesy of the resto there), and these BIG HUGE SPIDERS. Granted, we pulled in past dark, so we saw one huge female by the bathrooms, but it wasn't until the next morning that we realized how many there were -check out the second picture.

Arusha (again)

We are over half way through the program, and with all the excitement of the game drives and wildlife we have seen (well, I'm in biology, so at least I was excited about the animals!), I (and many others) realized we had very few people pictures in our collections. After the Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro, we were back in Arusha for almost a week. We realized, since we would be working on projects, that this was an ideal time to catch up on people pictures. Thus, except for the frog spotted on a bird walk, you have some pictures of a few of the amazing people who were on this field semester.
