I Made It!
Hello from Nova Scotia! I made it to Cherry Hill, the seaside town in Nova Scotia where I'm staying, last night around 10:30 p.m. It was definitely a crazy trip. My flight was delayed in Atlanta, so I missed my flight in Washington, D.C. Then, I had to fly to Montreal before getting to Nova Scotia. That means in one day I was in Atlanta, Washington, D.C. (I didn't see Zora!), Montreal and Halifax. Can you find all the cities I was in yesterday on a map?
But, I got here in one piece and, thankfully, my teammates saved me some pizza and salad. Speaking of teammates, I'd better introduce you. Yuma is a guy from Japan. He is learning to speak English. He tries hard and is catching on quickly. Maybe he will teach me some Japanese. Candice and Suzanne are teachers like me. They teach middle school students in Los Angeles, California and Boston, Massachusetts. Allison is a woman from England. The two real scientists are Christina and Chris. They live here in Nova Scotia researching mammals and spend part of the year trapping badgers in England. Do you know what badgers are?
Today we have a busy day. Christina is cooking eggs and bacon now. Next, she will teach us about mammal monitoring science. That means I will be sitting in a class and listening to a teacher, like you! I have lots of great questions for her. After lunch, we will drive to Broad Cove to walk along the coast. Did you know that the coast is where the sea meets the land? I'm hoping to see my first porcupine today! Wish me luck!
I will post pictures for you to look at tomorrow. I hope you are having a great day and doing your best. I'm so lucky to have such great students. Tell Ms. Hanes I said thank you again!
