On the road again
Three of us Unity College faculty are leading a group of students on a filed trip to DC to the NCSE Biodiversity Conference.
These are a couple of shots of events so far. The first is of student Kelli B and Professor Alysa Remsburg on the couch at William Penn House, a Quaker guest house for groups visiting town. The Penn House is very comfortable and affordable, and has saved us a lot of money on DC hotel prices, which are upwards of $200/night, even before the inauguration.
Kelli had Greek food for the fist time last night. Quoth she, "I was nervous, but when you see the menu it all looks good."
Next up is Peter K, an infrequent poster to this blog, and well known for having no worries about eating any kind of food, and Kaylee S.
That's all for now except for this big lobster we saw at the National Aquarium, over three feet long including antennae. Why come from Maine to DC to see a lobster? I don't know, but we were impressed.
More to come. Today is museum day. Monday is day one of the conference.
