Sorry this post is so late, but I haven't had internet for awhile. So, don't worry if you haven't posted yet! I hope everyone is doing well! I'm learning a lot here and I'm very excited to show you all what I have been learning. We are a group of 9 teachers and scientists who will be studying Caterpillars in the Pearl River area of Louisiana.
First, I had a chance to look around New Orleans on the day I arrived and I have to say that it is a beautiful city!!! Oh, I love the architecture! The buildings are gorgeous... and the food... YUM!!!
This is a picture of the Parkview Hotel where I stayed for a night before heading out to Pearl River.
New Orleans is a great city with A LOT of history, arts, music, and delicious food!!!
Although a lot of people did lose their homes in Hurricane Katrina, the people of New Orleans still remain friendly and they are very helpful to strangers (yes, Ms. Shin needed help on day one). Did you know that parts of New Orleans was under 25 feet of water?!!! Wow. I wonder what else happened around here?
On Saturday we headed out to the bunk house near Pearl River. We saw a beautiful rainbow over the river. Can you spot it?
It's right about here.
On Sunday, we went over our schedule, what we would be learning, teaching, focusing on, and more. It was the first day of school for Ms. Shin. I didn't get to search for caterpillars just yet, but I did manage to see a beetle and snake right outside our bunk house... that was cool!!!
Hopefully, I will have more to post tomorrow. Till then, stay cool!! No... really... stay cool, it's like 90 degrees and REALLY humid here! And when it rains, it pours!!!
