June 26: Celebrity

Image002 This morning I had a very nice surprise: My photo on the My Alcoa Web site! Just for one day, it seemed to me that I'm famous at Alcoa. Several workmates called me to say that I was so lucky (I have no doubt!) and they are going to apply to the Earthwatch Fellowship Program next year for sure. All of them will be very good applicants for the award. The rest of the morning was a very stressful day, always in a hurry. It was my last day working before leaving for the expedition, so I wanted to do as much as possible to avoid overburdening my colleagues during the next two weeks. Now, I am going to pack my luggage. I think I have all I need. I have double-checked the packing list from the Briefing. Later, I am also going to say goodbye to my parents, my friends, my colleagues...for sure they are going to ask me for presents. Well, it is time to go. Tomorrow my adventure will start!!
