March 20, 2009: Big news

Woo Hoo!!! I got it! I got it! I got it! Yipee for me! Yipee for Yennora! I will be the first successful Earthwatch candidate from my location. Everyone is so excited. Looks like I'll be off to the Belarus Wetlands in August. Where in the world is Belarus? "Somewhere in South America?" was the first guess. A quick Google check verifies that it is in fact in Eastern Europe, bordering Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania and Latvia. I love to travel, so this is a great way to not only see more of the world, but to help the environment at the same time. Another Google check tells me that the weather will be just fine, a balmy 18C, so no REAL need to splurge on a whole new adventure wardrobe. It will be summer and no trudging through snow and battling sub-zero temperatures required.
