Everyone has arrived safe and sound in Berlin, after many hours of traveling. We all navigated very well from Tegel airport to our campus and are now settling into our dorms, taking showers, unpacking, etc. before meeting up to go out for dinner together and explore the area. I will post pictures of the group soon. It is sunny, clear and almost 3 pm here, with Vermont time at 8:30 a.m.Illustration by Martin Schwartz, Berlin

Students had a chance to engage with the village members during a drumming/dance performance as well as during a visit to the school. Then we had one last game drive in the Delta.
Students prepared questionnaires for a survey to obtain information from residents of Eretsha, a remote village in northern Botswana in the Okavango Delta
We viewed at least 15 species (not including birds) during an all-day game drive in the Okavango Delta.
