It’s the little things that will make you worry when you sign up for something like the Turkana Basin Field School. Most of this blog has documented the stuff that might be expected. You sign up for a semester studying human evolution in Kenya and you hike through the desert, see a few zebra, pet a few goats, and generally get your hands dirty.
But what happens when there’s down time? What will home look like for ten weeks? In the break between the archaeology and paleontology module, I’d like to take you on a quick stroll around TBI before diving into the vertebrate fossil record of the Turkana Basin with Dr. Mikael Fortelius.
