Utila, Honduras: Halfway point!
I have officially reached the halfway point of my stay with Opwall in Utila. It has been 2 weeks filled with diving and teaching reef ecology, getting familiar with ongoing research projects, and brainstorming ideas for new ones. Internet has been a bit of a challenge since I arrived, so I will keep this brief!
I have been busy taking a lot of photos (mostly underwater), and a few videos as well. A little tricky since I can't change mode or settings for close up vs. landscape photos while the camera is in the housing! But I've been able to snap a few good ones! I'll just post a few now.
