Well, all good things must come to an end. And in this case, they came to a freezing cold, screeching halt as we returned to a New York covered in snow. It's taken some of us a little extra time to dig out our cars, repair frozen pipes, or adjust to wearing socks and shoes when outdoors; but we're all acclimating to our regular life in a temperate (not-tropical) environment.
The next set of posts will be the project abstracts for the student research projects. They gave us their final oral presentation in Jamaica and in two weeks will be submitting their final paper for the course.
Hope everybody had a great time and learned a lot. Brad and I (and Amber) enjoyed the course immensely.
