I hope you had a wonderful weekend! New Orleans is a very interesting city with lots of great food and wonderful music. Right now I am in Pearl River Wildlife Management Area- in the bayou. There are 10 of us sleeping in a bunk house, it is like science camp for adults. Today I go to collect my first caterpillars!
