Two days of travel has a way of calming one's nerves - I had been running on nervous energy since learning of my selection as the Education and Outreach (E&O) Officer on Expedition 361: Southern African Climates (or SAFARI).  But now I've arrived, with a good portion of my check off list completed and a full day available for exploring the beautiful, tropical island of Mauritius.

Good bye SW Indian Ridge, hello South African Climate!

Expedition 360 is coming to a close. We arrive in port very early tomorrow morning. It has been a great adventure for the educators on board. 
We have learned a lot of geology, we've grown as educators, and we've made friends that are more like family now.
