Yesterday was the last meeting for the group before we depart for Bhutan.  Just five weeks from now we will all board the plane at LAX and head for the great unknown.  This transition for me has been a short one.  Bhutan has been on my radar for years, but I never dreamed of being there for a full six months of immersion.  My heart races at the very thought of the opportunity.  Knowing that I am going is stealing my attention from those final tasks which accumulate at the end of every semester.  This is a cross section of academic love stories colliding.  

Here I will keep my journal from the trip.  For now - back to finals.
