There are five of us traveling this year and each of us has slightly different purposes. Leigh Bryan and I are kicking the tires on the trip to see if it will work for a study abroad program.  We have two students who are traveling with us who need classes for summer and will provide a student viewpoint on the trip.  Finally, Drew (my son) is going to help as needed and he is interested in how cities are planned.
