Ecuador 2011

For two weeks in January 2011, during my winter break, I had the opportunity to join my advisor and a group of scientists on an odonate (dragonfly and damselfly) expedition. It had nothing to do with my own research interests, except being an excellent place to chase insects of all sorts and learn about conducting research in the tropics.

It was an experience of a lifetime that I will forever cherish. We spent one week in the cloud forest of the Andes mountains at the Yanayacu Biological Station and Center for Creative Studies, and another week exploring the Amazon basin.

To learn more about my adventures on this trip, check out my flickr gallery and posts on my old blog. If you would like to comment, please do so here instead of on my old blog. Thanks and enjoy!

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equaally educative and
    entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the
    nail on the head. The problem is something too few men and
    women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunbt for something regarding this.
