Thanks to the Cactus & Succulent Society of America, the Pacific Bulb Society, the American Society of Plant Taxonomist AND the Florida Museum of Natural History, I'm finally on my way to Tanzania! Only two short months before departure and there is still a lot to do. I'm lucky enough to be traveling with Dr. Emily Sessa (website) and my advisor Dr. Nico Cellinese (website) for four weeks! Can't wait to show you all what we find! Our flight lands at Kilimanjaro, Tanzania in early January so check back for updates.
