Right, so…school has clearly taken over my life. It’s somehow been nearly seven weeks since my last post.
Three quick lessons today (because I don’t have time to expand on them):
1. The Bering Sea/Strait/whatever else out there is called Bering are named for late 17th/early 18th century Danish explorer Vitus Bering. I have no idea how I didn’t know Bering was a person. His explorations were part of Peter the Great’s golden age of Russian Imperialism.
2. Tel Aviv apparently has the biggest pride week celebrations in all of continental Asia.
3. There is such a thing as a tufted puffin, and it is awesome!
