As an amazing piece of luck I got to go to NIcaragua for a week to get some footage for a course that is a collaboration between Seattle University and Universidad Centroamericana (UCA). I traveled with two delightful environmental scientists from UCA; Marvin Torrez, who is the Director of the Biological Field Station Juan Roberto Zarruk and an expert in birds; and Gabriel Hipólito Vega, who is an expert in mollusks. We are back in Seattle editing the film now but these are a few pictures of some of the places i got to go. Truly, Nicaragua has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world.
In all of my ePortfolio work I talk about using the blog as an engine for collecting evidence and tagging that evidence so that during the selection process it is easy to filter. But I never follow my own advice. So as of today (1/15/13) I am going to begin dumping things in here and see if I can train myself to get in the habit of posting something at least once a week.
