Hi everyone, I’m a little behind on the blog so the next several posts are going to be picture-heavy and text-light. I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve been so wrapped up with work lately that if I wait for time to write out all the stories in detail it’ll be about time to start … More Island hopping off of Amorgos
Hi Everyone, Just a quick update to let you know I’m alive and well. Sorry for the long delay since last posting. I’ve quite literally been flat out every single day. Last week Tuesday thru Friday I was up and in the field at or before 6:00 am. I’m a herpetologist! We’re supposed to get … More Trap Collecting!

Hi Everyone, I’m afraid I’m too tired to report back on all of the goings on here in a more substantive way than saying I’m very busy but things seem to be going well. I only had a few days of Johannes’ individual attention so I’ve been trying to make the best of it, peppering … More First couple of days on Naxos
Hi Everyone, I’m safe and sound in Naxos. I haven’t actually slept yet; I had meetings all afternoon, but have a stated bedtime of 9:00 pm tonight. I was last solidly asleep Sunday at 6 am… someone else is going to have to do to the math for me. Whatever the count, I’m afraid I’m … More Paris!
And here are a few more from Monterey!
