What Have I Gotten Myself Into?

I will spend a month traveling in Mongolia attending field school. I will have 2 tasks: studying the impacts of environment on horse culture and helping with an ongoing biodiversity study of wild horses, marmots, and wolves. I have come to realize that no matter how much I have prepared, there will always be more to do!
